So my bear die is still a juvenile (I think) and it’s fall here so colder weather. He used to eat crickets and sit worms but now won’t touch them. He’s only interested in fruits and vegs. He stays in one place sleeping almost all day…thoughts?

Please go over all the lighting in the tank ---- UVB coil or a long tube --- any colored bulbs--- surface basking temps-- how are you taking them ? NO stick ons please --- for him to be in one spot all day sounds off ---- what place is he staying in?

So I’m finding that he’s just super finicky! He’s also now eating super worms but like only one a day plus his fruits and veggies. He’s about 12” head to end of tail. Another peculiar thing is his head is pretty white right now…maybe starting to shed there?

Try getting him some dubia roaches --- they are a better staple feeder than crickets -- www.dubiaroaches.com go by their chart and insects no bigger than the space between the eyes - have you tried BSFL -- they are a larvae that are great for babies use them as salad toppers do not dust them they are calcium enriched - great compliment to the roaches you will need to dust the roaches tho - feed in the morning on top of his salads use as many as you want - drop them in front of him in his bowl -- it will get his attention - https://www.amazon.com/MACGOAL-Rept...uGQB&pd_rd_wg=tLkwE&ref_=pd_gw_ci_mcx_mr_hp_d
www.symtonbsf.com -- or you can get them from dubia roaches also known as nutri grubs calci worms or phoenix worms -- Nutrition Content ignore the kale info its outdated

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
