Does this sound normal to you?

He woke up a week ago and were waiting for a poop. A day later, he drank a lot of water on his own. Today, he was out and about and went the biggest watery poop and normal looking urate. All of his poop was watery. (Not panicking over parasites yet.) I'll wait and see how his 'poop' is next time to see if it's watery the next time. Then I'll take that sample to the vet.
However, is this normal for a beardie that came out of brumation? Watery, well hydrated poops?

I'm not the most experienced, but my two cents:

The poop is going to reflect what the beardie ate or drank. If he filled up on water but didn't necessarily have any fruits, veg, or bugs...it's going to be runny. And sometimes it takes a week or two (or three) after waking up for beardies to get back into their regular diet. If it's still runny after he's back to eating regularly before worrying.

If he doesn't start eating normally soon or if he does start eating normally and his poop is still runny, then I might start getting to the bottom of it.

He has drank more water than greens. He ate greens in the morning and doesn't show any signs of wanting to eat in the evening yet. I offered, he'll stare for a few minutes, deciding if he wants it or not. He'll turn his head away. So I don't force him to eat when he doesn't want it.

i think he is fine then. it sounds like what is going in matches what is coming out.

He became happier when he went. Sat in his bath getting cleaned with some warm water and some dragon safe soap. On his body and on his tail. He's not squirming or moving around like he was before he went. He ran all over the living room floor. Lucky I have no carpet. It would have been worse.

What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
