Is This Normal

Postby JConn » Mon Sep 23, 2019 7:48 am

We’ve had our beardie 9 months now. Not sure how old she was when we got her but she was pretty small from the pet store. We recently bought a bigger tank and a hammock since she likes to be up high. However the problem is, she doesn’t want to come down from it. I think she spends too much time on it and less on her rock under the heat. She also doesn’t seem to interested in eating. She will eat super worms when you hand feed her, but she is barely eating any crickets which she was previously eating around 20 per feeding. Is she too young to go through brumation? How do you know. We have been removing her from her hammock in the mornings and placing her on her rock. I’m concerned she’s not getting adequate food or light.

I wouldn't worry too much yet, if your beardie isn't coming down from the hammock; before you start worrying or freaking out I would move his heat lamp and his UVB bulb on top of the hammock, my boyfriend's beardie also chooses hammock over basking, they love to climb and lay on hammocks. Us moving the lights over the hammock solved our situation.
