Heavy Sleepers


I just don't seem to get why my bearded dragon just likes to sleep whenever I take him out! I mean, he does seem fully awake but after several minutes he just sleeps. Can you guys tell me why he likes to just sleep all them time? This just got me confused...

From my experience and understanding, my dragons like to be cuddly and close with their owner and get comfy when they’re out and about or snuggling up, they’ll fall asleep on or close to you if they trust you.

Or if they’re exploring around a room or something it’s just their natural instinct to go and find the darkest and warmest spot they can find to get comfortable in.

Another thing, often my beardies will have a load of pent up energy and I’ll let them run loose (while being supervised by me and only one out at a time) around and play in my room and they’ll run back and forth through my room and tire themselves out and then immediately find a place to nap. It’s just a thing with beardies I guess :)

I see my lizard is being given Allopurinol 100ml tablet 10mg/ml (0.4) and tramadol 0.2ml every other day to help with gout. I have tramadol at home can I water it down and give it to her and if so do anyone know how much to water down ?
