    Crazy behavior from adult dragon

    i will measure it when i am home but i believe it’s around 12 inches . it’s strange because he has never exhibited this behavior before and the UVB has remained in the same spot throughout his entire residence in that tank, the only things that have changed was making the switch to bioactivity...

    Crazy behavior from adult dragon

    he is still basking when he’s not tearing apart his tank LOL, only issue I have is that the UVB is closer than 12-15 inches to him when he is basking in certain areas and im not sure how to fix that without putting the uvb fixture on top of the mesh- here is a photo of the tank he usually basks...

    Crazy behavior from adult dragon

    My male bearded dragon has recently started going insane in his tank from the moment his lights turn on until they turn off. This has been happening in the past week or so and he just turned one year old recently. Some people said this is hormones , or breeding season behavior. All his husbandry...

    Unusual Behavior Suddneky

    he does bask but considerably less then he used to since he now hides underneath the rock rather than basking- his appetite is good, still goes after bugs when he sees them, the only unusual thing is the hiding.i just now lowered the basking spot to see if it’s the high temperatures that is...

    Unusual Behavior Suddneky

    apologies for late response, all his lights are correct and i remember it was you who helped me to set his tank up so thank you sm for that! i wouldn’t think it’s a light issue as nothing has been changed in his setup- could the behavior be as a result of the outside temp? im in new england so...

    Turning Black when put back in tank

    there is no cover- he usually basks under his bulb most of the day sometimes moving positions and moving from the rock to the log to thermo regulate- he has never gone to the cool side except the past two days- 2 hours sooner then he usually does- most of the time a hour before his lights are...

    Turning Black when put back in tank

    sorry just double checked- uvb is a T8 and is 8 or so inches above his basking spot- i will try to feed him the veggies more often and see if he’ll take them- just want to make sure the lack of veggies isn’t going to damage him in the long run

    Turning Black when put back in tank

    reptisun T5 - it has a self made foil reflector- it’s temporary as he’s moving into another enclosure soon, what are other good options to get him to eat veggies and fruit?

    Turning Black when put back in tank

    My 9 week old bearded dragon turned very black today after I put him back in his tank and hid in his sleeping place. Blacker then i’ve ever seen him turn. I was handling him for 5 minutes like normal, and he wasn’t black until I put him back in his tank + hid on his stick he sleeps on. Did I do...

    slight lumps in stomach? assuming it’s just his bugs

    i will look into getting some basking spot like that- so it can regulate it’s temperature better- i have something similar but it’s a bit large so i might change it out for the link you sent. his poop is dark brown formed + white urate- it is dried out but only because it sits under his lamp...

    slight lumps in stomach? assuming it’s just his bugs

    yep i noticed the stress marks- hes darker in the morning then in the middle of the day which was when the photos were taken, that’s usually the lightest he gets. for UVB i made a earlier post and i think you helped me through with that- it’s a T8 mounted on the inside of his tank on the screen...

    Will the UVB Lighting Melt the Cable Ties Used

    thank you for the advice! he also seems to be much more active then the first day i had him- glass surfing to the point where i notice a increase in his breathing rate - probably from the activity. i’ll see where he goes from here, hopefully he chills out after a couple days with correct...
