Lazy bearded dragon.

Postby BeakerARand19 » Sat Jun 27, 2020 6:32 am

Hello, my bearded dragon beaker has been lazy recently. He usually just sits under his uvb lamp all day now still has bright colors. And i am thinking he is going through another growth spurt as he is growing quite a bit weekly he will run over to his food dish to tell me he is hungry. And is eating a lot more than usual.

Thanks

I got a reptisun 10.0 for his uvb his temps are 100-110 for his basking side and 80-85 for his cool side. I measure with a temp gun.

The T 8 needs to be inside the tank if it is not -- the plastic cover needs to be off leaving the bulb exposed and decor piece needs to be 6-8 inches under it -- if all that is correct your dragon is having his lazy days -- if not I would get it corrected and watch his behavior then --
