Hesitant to eat

Postby izanagi » Mon Oct 19, 2020 8:01 am

hi guys,

i recently got a new bearded dragon after unfortunately my last one passing away, but i got my new one yesterday and wow... their personalities are completely different. my last bearded dragon after coming home was completely fine and ate with no complications, loved being handled, etc.this one is very jumpy when it comes to being handled (i only handle him when necessary since hes very new, but as i was typing this he came to the front of the tank and i held him for a bit and he was so much better!). but i dont know if its because hes new he doesnt wanna eat and hes overwhelmed or its something wrong with him. hes eaten here and there (as he did yesterday) and hes a bit chubby. my setup is a 36x18x18 and i have a 150w basking bulb and uvb is a T5 HO 24W 10.0.

this is what he looks like:

on top temporarily until i can figure out how to get it inside the tank and hook it up inside bc ive tried everything to get it inside the tank and it just makes no sense to me how people do it. whenever i do get the hooks people have, it never fits for some reason :( im going to the store this weekend to get everything i need to hook it up
