Depressed Beardie?

Postby laylasummers » Tue Dec 01, 2020 11:26 pm

Hello. I have an adult beardie, and her behavior seems different to me recently and I’m a bit concerned. When I used to take her out of her enclosure, she would immediately starting running all over the place. Now, she barely runs and immediately looks for a place to hide / tuck into where she just lies down. In her enclosure she is on her hammock much less basking and is often laying flat on the bottom, sometimes in the corner. Sounds silly, but she seems kind of sad. Thoughts? She is also eating her fruits and vegetables less, and pooping less. Thanks.

Does your dragon have a hide? It sounds like shes trying to brumate-- please go over your UVB brand and bulb where in the tank is it and basking temps what are they are how are you taking them? We need to rule those two things out to make sure it is brumation
