Hey guys I have been waking my beardies up every 2 weeks to see if they want water or food. Should I be concerned if they don't want to eat or drink or if they eat but won't bask or poop?

They have pretty much hunkered down and are not active at all day or night only active when I wake them

I would offer only water -- sounds like they are out- hows the weight going? have you weighed them?

I have not actually but I woke Amber up to give her a bath and feed her and she actually ate 6 crickets today so I'm happy

I will try to do the same thing with Chubbs tomorrow though she hasn't refused bugs before/during/after this brumation period

I was just worried about Amber because Chubbs loves eating but Amber is 90% of the time refusing food

That was the first thing I looked at lol just need to get it level enough and just subtract the grams before I use it
You should be able to place him directly on it w/ out having to zero it out since there wont be a bowl or plate hes on

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
