Not so hungry..

Postby Beledorus » Thu Apr 08, 2021 8:31 am

Hello, so..
Got two bearded dragon since they had 3 months, one male ( Cheesecake) and female ( Sansa) . I'm keeping them in two separate vivarium ( 4ft ). Recently both of them are 9 months old and get no appetite for last couple of weeks. They eat one locust daily, bit of salad ( like one leaf of greens), but is kind of
2 weeks ago but everything looks perfect ( no parasites or anything to worry about). Temperature are ok , uvb tube was changed recently. They looks healthy, basking on afternoon and after that they chilling in their hides ( they coming out from time to time to check on me ) . They not loosing on Weight. Sansa so far got 314g and Cheesecake 285g.
So my question is if its anything should I've been worried about or its quite normal that they and some point eating less ?

My dragon is going through something similar. It's strange because he used to eat as many dubia roaches as I'd give him, but now he sometimes refuses to eat anything. He'll stay in his hide sometimes all day.

It looks like you have a good setup with the lighting and everything. From what I've heard from others, this type of behavior can be normal. It's good you're tracking their weight. If they're not losing weight and they don't have parasites, then you probably don't have anything to worry about.
