Hi all. Got my buddy orange all set up now with several locations to get up to suitable levels of UVB a good basking spot that ranges between 95 and 110 degrees across its surface under my 50 watt halogen floodlight got his reptisun t5 10 lowered about 4 inches now putting his basking rock about 16 inches away, his log about the same distance in the middle zone and his hammock and hide mountain in the cool side being in a lesser uv area with the back of his hide having little to no UV . I also set him up with an LED daylight bulb to get things nice and bright in there for him

Now for the actual question , my last post a while back had him starting some shed and I know it can take a bit to get it done , he ranges from very lethargic to almost hyper active , eats well and poops like a horse, I have even found a salad blend he seems to love . I have cut back on some of the baths (he loves the water) to about 3 a week while he’s in the process of shedding

His humidity is ranging from 32-35 depending if the lights are on or off this is taken from both the digital ambient thermometers and my in-room probe thermometer I use to make sure I keep the rest of the room in line as well

Going to attach some pics and hopefully it’s nothing, but I err on the better safe than sorry mindset, taking care of him helps my mental state quite a lot .

It’s gone from being kind of gray white to more normal but like faded

Thanks in advance everyone

Too many baths will dry the scales out-- just mist him about once a week - but that is shed coming on -

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?
