Beardie going dark

Postby Billy1222 » Mon Apr 06, 2020 2:17 pm

So sometimes my bearded dragon will go darker his whole body. Then all the sudden will go back to his normal color is this normal or is it something to worry about

Does he do this sitting under his basking lamp?

Its a sign of absorbing heat --- they usually do it under the basking light - is your UVB close to your basking decor --
