So I got a beardie recently. my first one, I believe is a hatchling. I got her (not quite sure the gender yet) from PetsMart. I know it wasn't the best idea. She's been doing great with mostly everything. she climbs. she basks (Although we need a new heat lamp since it isn't the right temp) she eats. and she loves to be held by me (I've had her for 3 days and a half) but the thing is. She's stressed as soon as she's in her enclosure and I don't seem to see her sleep in it. but as soon as I take her out she's active. her stress marks lessen but is still there slightly. she sleeps on me. help?

lol it’s called spoiled. My first one did the same and now he’s big enough to free roam in the house. Shyla my baby she’s ok for the most part in her enclosure but sometimes you look at her in there and she just look depressed like “hey you guys when are you taking me out. I would recommend you cutting a piece of an old shirt or something so she can get used to smell inside as well and she may become a lil more comfortable being inside.

oh okay, thank you so much :) I notice her marks are always super dark in her cage but lighter outside it. Should I try and keep her in there more to make her get used to it or should I keep doing what I am? (holding her whenever i can bc she likes handling)

Personally I would keep doing what your doing but have a piece of your clothes or cloth inside for when you can’t. Make her feel like she’s with you even inside.

Stress is also caused by incorrect uvb and basking temps-- please go over the uvb your using and surface basking temps-- you need a digital probe thermometer- stick ons are incorrect - if everything is good we can rule it out - they do go thru relocation stress but you want that uvb and temps spot on it will help her acclimate to the tank faster

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
