Hi! I just got a Beardie. He's about 5 years old. I got his enclosure, too, but I had to clean out the sand and put tile down, which I did as soon as I got him. He's been hiding under his stone cave for about 3 days (eats only when put in front of him), so I took the cave out today. He is FINALLY out and about - exploring - even pooped! But I have a couple questions... 1) he's trying to eat - pops his tongue out, but he rarely is able to pull food into his mouth. Is this a concern? 2) His enclosure is quite big - all wood with plexiglass sliding doors on the front. The basking side is around 100, but the other side is only about 75. Do I need more light/heat? Using 2 UVB bulbs (24" Reptisun) plus a 150w ExoTerra Intense Basking Spot bulb.
He seems to be a darker color than when he was in his other home. Is this an indication of anything?
I just want him to be happy and healthy in our home. I hope you guys can shed some light for me - no pun intended! Thanks!!!

The UVB is where in the tank ? Top of screen or inside-- Is it a T 5 or a T 8? this is crucial --- basking temps need to be surface temps digital probe thermometer-- probe on the spot where he basks 95-100-- darker color could be he was cold -- they will darken to absorb the heat --- please put his cave back in his tank --- it is brumation season so for being 5 has he ever brumated before --- mine miss there insects but they do usually get them is this the case here ? what size tank is he in now?

Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
is tape safe for fixing something in my leopard geckos hide?
Day 3 of brumation. It's a struggle. I really miss my little guy. 😔
