    Hi everyone! I got my first baby bearded dragon 4 days ago, and she has barely eaten. Within the first 24 hours, she ate maybe 5 crickets. She became really lethargic after 24 hours. I noticed her temps were off, so I got a better basking light, and her temps are good now. 95-105 in the hot...

    Health

    Hey guys! So this morning I just got a bearded dragon baby! They (not sure if boy or girl) are eating well! Even ate some kale! I just want to make sure they look healthy as they seem a bit on the skinny side! Is this just a baby thing? Also how old would you say they are?

    Is he okay??

    My little baby beardie fell a 5 foot drop and I am not sure if he is alright. And when he fell, his belly was flat on the ground. I am afraid that he might have broke something.
