So i’ve had my beardie for a week and he/she doesn’t want salad. I’ve tried everything the bee pollen, feeding by hand, variety in the diet, using insects in the food bowl. Still can’t get a piece of salad in there. The last time she pooped was a week ago. So i’m also worried about that

Also the past 2 days he/she has been laying under the hide digging himself a little in the sand. *Yes i know that sand is super bad and this is the playsand the last owner gave to me and i’m looking for a replacement as soon aa possible.* But i don’t know why can someone please help me. The temperatures are during the day 27C° humidity is between 30 and 40% her basking area is 35C°. Can someone please help?

Basking temps and bulb? UVB bulb, coil or tube and what brand? Lighting is arguably the single biggest factor in their overall health so it is important to rule out improper lighting as a possible cause.

Ok your humidity is good - the 80 F is cool side ? If so thats good - the 95 F is good for surface basking temp- you want it 95--100 F on the surface of the basking decor- how are you taking these temps? Are you using a digital probe thermometer? Stick ons are only ambient temps and IR guns are good but do not read off of certain materials - if you do not have a digital I recommend you get two of them
Lets sex the dragon please post a pic of the dragon vent facing the camera w/ the dragon placed flat on a table w/ the tail in the air so we can see the vent --- then we can go from there w/ the digging etc -- we can talk about diet when we figure out what is going on w/ the digging- it could be nothing --- dragons can go for long periods of time w/ out pooping -- dehydration is key here as well but lets get thru one issue at a time for now

One other way to get the Gender of your Beardie is if you have a flash light then put it right at the beginning of your Beardies tail. Then of you lift then you would either see one big bulge, or circle then that is a female, if you see 2 then they are a male

Thank you all for replying. I’m using a digital probe thermometer. This morning he finally pooped and it looked all good and healthy. I’ve also tried to take a picture under his tail but it really stresses him out, so this picture isn’t my beardie but looks exactly like it.

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!
