beardie dragon jumped in cold water

Postby LoraLizard » Sat Sep 26, 2020 8:29 pm

I went to get my beardie clean water before bed, i didn’t really pay attention to the temp bc she never really goes by it or drinks out of it, i just keep it there just incase she decides to. Well today she didn’t just decide to drink out of it for the first time, she decides to jump in it and swim around! And i checked the water and it’s kind of cold, not what a bath should be. She jumped out after swimming and drinking it and then when she was out she acted scared and hit under her rock. Now she’s basking in the light, will she be okay??

She should be just fine, it was probably invigorating for her. Though, it might have surprised
her a little bit. As long as she was basking to warm back up & was thoroughly dry before the
lights went out there shouldn't be any problems for her.
Just watch her carefully for any signs of respiratory issues, etc.
