Hibernating?

My bearded dragon, Momo, has been in his cave all day today. I woke up this morning at 8 and he was laying flat, he hasn't moved or gone to eat or drink. Momo ate 3-4 crickets three days ago and last night ate one superworm. I'm a little bit worried for him. I held him not to long ago to check him out, he's cold but not stiff.

Hello,

Can you post a picture or two of Momo. That doesn't
sound good, but they do get lethargic during brumation.
How old is he? Is his beard black?

His beard isn't black, he's about 5-6 weeks old now. The first picture was 4 days ago, and the one under his log is today

Babies do not brumate- please go over your uvb brand and bulb what are the surface basking temps and how are you getting them? Stick ons are inaccurate

Hi there, Momo does look unwell. Is he a pet store baby ? If so did they recommend feeding him superworms ? I ask because those are too big to feed a baby beardie. Hopefully he just has an upset stomach but at worst it could cause impaction. Try to get the loose crckets out so they don't bite his eyes + mouth [ for moisture that's what loose crickets do ] Drip some water on Momo's mouth to give him a drink now.

Yes, we got him from Petco. They recommended superworms and gave us stick ons. He looked unwell when we bought him but they had said he was ok, just stressed from being moved to a different tank.

Please post lighting and surface basking temps -- these are crucial to your dragons survival

So it's not your fault but yeah, the stores give improper + harmful info. Can you post a pic of his entire tank to show the whole set up, including the lights ? Is Momo still the same ?

This is how Petco showed us to set it up in the store.

Please get two digital probe thermometers and place one on the spot where he sits to bask 10 min or so get the temp you want it 105-110-- please tell me what brand and bulb the UVB is - look on the bulb itself it will tell you is it a T 5 or a T 8 that will be at the bottom of the writing

I'm not seeing anything on the bulb but I can only find this

What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
