My bearded dragon was normal and a few days ago started sleeping all the time, I thought it was brumation but she’s not eating, not pooping, she’s not active. I’m super worried because her beard is turning black then normal. Her mouth looks fine. Her tail looks fine, her color is looks normal. Her enclosure isn’t to jot or cold. Any ideas?

Uvb being used coil or long tube fixture - placement of uvb-- surface basking temps what are they and how are you taking them--stick ons are inaccurate

Hello,

If you can post some pictures of her, that would be really
helpful. How often does her beard turn dark, & is it dark
when she's sleeping?
Is she losing any weight right now, or is it stable?

My heat lamp just broke thanks to my cat and I don’t have a water bottle so I did a make shift one. So the scales aren’t black right now but the skin under is black. I feel terrible and petsmart doesn’t open for 5 more hours

She will be fine --- make sure your using a clear solid bright white basking bulb that keeps temps 95-100 taken w/a digital probe thermometer- what are you using for a UVB? Please take a pic of the under belly if its black---- to me she looks fine in the pic -- a lot of dragons are brumating right now and usually sleep in their hides/ caves - it is normal for them not to eat in brumation and not be active but sleep - not sure about the black beard tho turning off and on w/ the blackness - how black is it getting - their beards will turn colors w/ mood changes

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
