doesn't want her veg and sleeps during the day

Not sure If this is the right section for this. Basically for the past 3 months I'd say my bearded dragon has shown little to no interest in her veg. Now usually she would happily eat them not long after I put the dish in her viv.

She has no issues eating her locusts and dubia roaches. I've also noticed she stays on her warm side but doesn't lie under her basking light. Her basking spot temperature is around 98-100 so it isn't too hot.

The last time she went off her veg she was gravid. Something I wasn't expecting. But she was also very restless and spent most of the day digging but she isn't doing that and I can't feel any eggs. I'm just stumped as to what's wrong with her

How are you taking the basking temps? No stick ons - is is the basking piece a hammock? That temp needs to be taken w/ a digital probe thermometer- no ir guns- probes are the most accurate- she could be getting ready for brumation- it's that time of year

I use a temp gun and a digital probe. Both have the same temps. Her basking spot is like a type of wood. I forgot the name of it but it holds heat well. She has never brumated before and I thought they went to the cold side

Hi I don't own a bearded dragon but stumbled on this thread looking for advice on hygrometers. (I own a tortoise)
A little hard to see but is your bearded dragon on the bottom left of the photo, if so the hides you have are too small to physically use by the look of her size. Does she have access to water also, as I don't see any in the photo though it may be the angle
