He just looks awkward, lying on his belly, with his front legs behind him, but his head still lifted in the air

They sleep or rest in every crazy position you can think of. They have also perfected the art of making their owners worry over all their quirky + weird behavior. He's fine, just chilling and doing what he wants. :)

Hello. Although scales has changed his position a few times this week, he is still behaving the same.
As he hasn’t ate any greens, I was just wondering if he need to bath him? So he can drink if he needs to?

You can or you can drop water on his nose to see if he will lick -- but you should do that a couple of times per week w/ the dropping on the nose

Thanks, I’ve been doing the water on the nose but he hasn’t been drinking it.

To be honest, very rare he drinks water anyway.

I may give him a soak tomorrow, as it’s been a week since his last soak

Are you rinsing his greens before serving? Watch his poop it will tell you if hes dehydrated it should be dark formed and moist along w/ the urate white formed and moist if its chalky and dried out looking hes dehydrated

yes his poo was always formed and moist, he was eating plenty of bugs and greens.

Hard to tell last time thou, as it was when he had a bath last week, he hasn’t been since, but that doesn’t surprise me, as he hasn’t eaten since

The dripping on the nose is just in case he wants a drink, same with a soak but a soak is never a good idea if it was a dragon that was actually in full sleep -mode brumation. Yours isn't really sleeping so he may or may not drink when you soak him but it is fine to let him be for 2-3 weeks at a time, no problem.

Scales looks to have perked up a little this morning.

My son just sent me this photo.

That's fine, everything is perfectly normal behavior that most owners will see at some time. Nothing to worry about, like I wrote from the start they can do this for a few days, weeks or months. They can go in to full on sleeping or just resting. He looks very healthy , also very pleased with himself for making you worry like all the other beardies do to their owners. :)

Well Scales is definitely teasing us 😂, by the time I got home from work, he was back in his hide, curled up and back in the brumation zone.

My boy put some greens in there but he wasn’t interested.

didn’t want to disturb him and bath him.

We’ll scales has been doing this for two weeks now.
The last day or two, he has been awake, putting his face by the glass, but then he goes back into his hide.
He hasn’t ate or drunk.
Do I need to do anything yet? Like bathe him

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
