Hello fellow beardie mommies!!!
So this last weekend I cleaned pedros cage, everything had been fine with no complaints. NOW though, it’s like he has an attitude towards me and gets his stress marks in belly when I appear in front of him. Is he gonna hold this grudge that I messed with his house forever? Or what’s going on with him, he’s not our Pedro right now ☹️ Why is he so crabby?!?!? [Click image to enlarge]

Pedro looks adorable-- he needs time to acclimate to his tank and surroundings --- I would leave him be and only put your hands in the tank and pet him --- put a piece of clothing or a fleece blanket in his hide w/ your smell on it so he gets used to you -- hand feed him some BSFL before feeding his salads and use them to lure him to his salad bowl -- approach from the sides and not over head they have a 3rd eye on top of their heads for predators --- please make sure you have the correct lighting for him --- NO coil UVB -- NO colored lights -- NO heat mats or rocks -- basking temps are taken w / a digital probe thermometer --- stick ons are inaccurate -- they need to be 105-110 -- for a baby if you need any more help please ask and Oh if hes shedding that will make them crabby--- and he may be off his food too till he adjusts to his new surroundings but you MUST HAVE the corrects temps and UVB or he will not eat or quit eating
