when i brought mine home from a reptile expo, which was a 2 1/2 hour drive i took her out, she walked on the counter as we got her viv set up and then put her in it for atleast 4 days for her to settle in, feeding her and putting her feeding and lights on a schedual, i have a timer for my lights which works very well. congrats on the new beardie! :D

Definitely leave your new beardie alone as much as possible. I know it really sucks because you want to spend every second watching them and interacting with them. But he/she will be very very stressed out by the whole ordeal and your presence will cause even more stress. So aside from feedings, try to stay away as much as possible for at least a day and then very very very gradually increase the amount of time you are around.

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
