Is my bearded sick or in brumation? help!!

Postby Sourpyschovbowser » Thu Jan 14, 2021 5:35 pm

Hi everyone my name is Emmy
Bowser is my 6 month old beardie and has been shedding for almost 3 weeks and it’s almost complete just the end of his tail and on his stomach still. His stomach has always been pretty translucent & has never been a huge eater. Over the past 2 weeks my beardie has completely lost interest for food. He usually would eat a few crickets and salad(romaine lettuce,baby spinach, apple as treat, cabbage,kale) he now let’s the crickets just crawl over him and has no interest on hunting them. I give him salad and crickets everyday but he won’t eat much. He enjoys dried mealworms but has stopped snacking on then within the past 1-2 weeks. He regularly swims in his water dish and drinks water throughout the day. I give him 2-3 baths a week and a little more with his shedding. I bought squash and some other beardie favourites for him to try and he isn’t interested. I’m so worried and it’s the middle of the pandemic & I really wanna make sure he’s okay.

Please go over the lighting in the tank? NO coils for UVB's and basking temps need to be taken w/ a digital probe thermometer -- temps should be 105-110 for a baby and 95-110 for a juvie/ adult-- those two things I just mentioned are the two most important thing in the tank
