Bearded dragon not eating

Postby LimKH » Sun Aug 02, 2020 3:50 am

Hi. It's been a while since I've been online around here. My bearded dragon isn't eating for a couple of days and I'm starting to get a little worried. He isn't shedding or anything. He just doesn't wanna eat and I'm not so sure why.

He's just laying down on the basking light. The UVB light is currently broken. I'm trying to get a new and a better one than before and I'm no so sure one where to look. He refuses to eat the superworm even though it's directly in front of him.

I'm using the reptile dome from Exo Terra. It isn't common that exotic pets are sold at where I am. I currently bring my bearded dragon out for a sunbathe

Please post a pic of the UVB ---- its good your bringing him out for UVB -- 15 min in direct sunlight on you or in a plastic tote NO glass is good but you must watch him -- What are you using for a basking bulb? Please post the lighting it is extremely important for your dragon

Ok so you need to get a 24" fixture w/ reflector-- what size is your tank? I am going to post a website that you can order from or look at your pet stores most don't carry this fixture I want you to get-- the basking bulb is good as long as it's keeping temps 105-110-- I will get it posted first thing in the morning
