Hey guys I'm just curious I know some but not all beardies eat less or stop eating period during their shedding stage I was wondering if beardies eat less or stop completely during mating season for example my male is eating and my female is not so it really just depends on the beardie I just wanna make sure thats the reason why and not a red flag that i might be missing here

Did you breed them? And can they see each other?
I have not no I know they definitely want to mate shes a bit to young and I want to be fully prepared if I ever decide to mate them as of right now its not on the table if she managed to start to eat again and is being healthy active and her normal self again ill go from there shes full of hormones atm and I have both their enclosures side by side so the only chance they have of seeing each other is if they are both out or 1 of them is basking and 1 is out of their enclosure i cover the cool side with a towel 24/7 case they wanna be shy and cool off so if 1 is on that side and 1 is out of the enclosure they cant see each other due to the towel

Ok so at no time they should see each other -- this could be why shes not eating - I would get that fixed or you will continue to have issues w/ them

I feel bad taking him/her out and not both together had a vet visit shes healthy happy and feisty gain some weight but as she said herself continue what I'm doing eventually she will eat right now shes full of hormones and them both out together isn't gonna help if I'm not gonna breed them so gotta stick to my guns and know keeping them separate outside their enclosures is whats best for them

There is something wrong with my beardies left eye!! I included a picture where it shows what her right eye looks like then the others are what her left eye is. She always has it closed (as much as she can) and she finally opened it for a bit when i misted her. I don’t know what i could be doing wrong and it’s not from sand because she doesn’t have it in her cage.
