Hi there,

Welcome to the site firstly and congrats on your baby :D

Would you be able to post a picture of him and his enclosure?

Your temperatures sound fine, what are you using to measure them?

What uvb bulb are you using?

How long have you had the little dude? They can go through relocation stress when they change environments. and this can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. During this time they typically dont have much of an appetite, but it grows as they get more accustomed to their surroundings.

If you're connecting using a computer, not a tablet or phone, look up at the top of the screen where there's a menu bar underneath the BeardedDragon.org banner. You'll see "User Image Uploader" between "Visitor Photos" and "Beardie Stuff Store." Click on the User Image Uploader and it will take you to the User Image Upload Manager. From there, click on "New Upload." Once it's uploaded, you can click on "List Images" and then on the image you just uploaded. There are several URLs you can use and cut and paste right into the body of a post. You should be able to take it from there... it's pretty user friendly. :)
