hmm, it might be brumation, but they usually eat.
what type of lights do you have?
if you have, what type of UVB do you have?
what are the temps?
what type of veggies do you give him?
do you give him calcium and supplements?
do you give him baths?
when was the last time he pooped?
what size enclosure?

i hope hes feeling better soon!!! :)

i think i may know the problem.
as for uvb lights, there are few that provide the right lighting that beardies need. i recommend switching it with ReptiSun 10.0, which you can get on pet mountain.com, or repti glo 8.0 or 10.0
also, they do need veggies. heres a site that shows the appropriate foods that are good- http://www.beautifuldragons.503xtreme.com/Nutrition.html foods highlighted green are the best.
hope that helps^^

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?
