Hi there ! You forgot to attach a picture. Lots of good people here can help you with Spark. Good to hear that he settled down a bit. You can leave the sand in the tank if he likes it but you have to 100 % sift out the poo, with a solid scooper to get out all the surrounding sand, not just the poo. Keep another bag of sand that you can add to his tank as you scoop out the old stuff.

I see that you have an exoterra terrarium and your internal vents panel has been half dismantled. (It is located under the glass doors and is located inside the terrarium) The dragon can get its claws stuck in the resulting gap. You need to remove this vents panel if it is broken or install it in its original place.

Hello,

Oh ok, the new name is Spark.
That's good to hear he seems to be doing better now, eating greens regularly & eating his worms too.
I hope that he likes his new UVB placement too, it should really help him out. Definitely post more
pictures & a video if you would like of him. Based on the above pictures, I don't see any evidence
of his eyes looking sunken in. He looks good, overall, alert & happy.
I hope he continues to do better.

Sorry, I don't understand the problem. It's normal for them to run around and they lick stuff all the time. They take up a lot of senses with their tongue (or the jacobson organ to be precise).

Also if you just put him in a new place it is normal for him to want out. If that is the case I would just let him settle into his new home and not take him out or handle him too much.

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
