Recently Laying Awkwardly

Postby Deabrua » Wed Mar 13, 2019 10:30 am

As of recently, whenever she lays down she has her head like this. Or upon rare occasion, her entire body is against the glass. She's 6.5 months old, nothing has changed in at least 2 months, and this just started last week. Even when she lays on her log, she'll have her head propped back against the glass where her log meets the side of the tank. Only have this pic to show.
EDIT: I just noticed she's dehydrated. Trying to get her to eat more crickets than she did earlier. She loses interest quickly when she cant catch them. Will resort to water droplets on her nose if i need to. But the behavior should (?) Be a separate issue given its been going for a week and this is only today?
EDIT 2: she's only going after crickets that either run immediately in front of her or are placed in front of her
EDIT 3: Running around tank, ignoring crickets

Position is normal--- where do you have her UVB mounted? Is it inside tank or am I just not seeing it?

Couple inches above the tank. 10 from her favorite basking spot.

There is no screen. Its an open top. No, she cant get out. No, nothing can get in. She has a 22 inch T5 HO 10.0 UVB in a 30 inch tank.
