That looks not good --- possibly mouth rot -- going to get some more help--- what kind of UVB are you using? coil or a long tube fixture--- brumation is when they go into a sleep and dont come out -- her not eating is from her lips --- what are the surface basking temps and how are you taking them? Please keep her hydrated -- she needs water and w/ her not eating I am thinking shes not drinking either?

Ok it sounds like your using a ceramic heat emitter? If that is the case you need a solid clear bright white basking bulb examples exo Terra intense or flukers basking bulb or a Arcadia halogen-- 2 digital probe thermometers - a good long tube fixture uvb- NO coils- the ceramic heat emitter will not keep surface basking temps to what you need- which are 95-100 this is crucial in starting digestion and w/ the temps not correct or uvb your dragon will not eat- I can post good uvb's for you links - please get these things right away like yesterday- your dragon is getting sicker and sicker w/ this being incorrect

Ok they dont carry the Arcadia Pro T 5 bulb - but you can order online from one of these links
Zoo Med ReptiSun T5 HO High Output Terrarium Hood this will come w/ a 5.0 bulb you need this bulb for a 40 + gallon tank
22" Zoo Med ReptiSun 10.0 UVB T5 HO High Output Fluorescent Bulb or this one from Pet Smart
24 watt w/ the 12% bulb Arcadia Reptile ProT5 UV-B Kit | reptile Light Fixtures | PetSmart
or this one you want the 24" fixture or 2 ft you will need the Reptisun bulb I posted above
please let me know what you get -- Petco sells T 8's they are not as strong as the T 5's I have posted -

I will need to help you get this placed for your tank -- the screen on the tank will determine where the UVB goes along the w/ the bulb -- T 8's need to go into the tank that is a must T 5's have more of a option --- yes her health and surface basking temps a long w/ the UVB is crucial to this -- for her to eat and be healthy --- please let me know what you find -- do you have a Pet Smart as well

Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
Im needing some questions answered about my female beardeddragon, I honestly have no idea on age , she was a recuse, as ive had a couple in my life an have experience. So 9 weeks in , she earing well pooping well getting comfortable, then approx 3-4 days ago the digging started. So I got a dig box set up in her 75 g tank. Well within 2 hours she dropped an egg. Now only one egg an its been 10 hours.shouldiBworried
