Hey guys I need your help. I’m new to being a beard mom. I have had my dragon for maybe a year now. But for the last 3 days my dragon hasn’t wanted to move. Not even for food. She still has crickets running around in her cage for 2 nights ago when I tried feeding her. She laying flat on the cold side of her tank. And she’s also not even acknowledging when I put my hand in there to pet her. She also looked very dark as if she’s stressed. What should I do?

Go over the surface basking temps how are you getting them -- uvb coil or long tube fixture? Please get the crickets out of the tank they will bite - these things I have asked about are crucial to her survival

so the uvb light is a tube fixture. I also have the normal heating lamp. And I will certainly do that!

Can you post pics of her so we can see her condition and of her habitat? How old is she, it could be brumation maybe, but we need to rule out health issues.

Hello,

Yes, please try to post some pictures of her along with
her tank setup so we can be sure everything is correct.
How is she doing today, is she black bearding?
Brumation is common, but we need to make sure there
aren't any underlying health issues going on.
Has she moved much or is she still laying still & lethargic?

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
