 MY BABY MIGHT BE ILL HELP.

Hi, I donít think the weather is relevant in this case unless itís less than 25 degrees Celsius in the shades. Maybe sheís stressed or... whatever mustard greens are... I donít think itís necessary to give her some... When my lizards arenít eating I usually just change their diets for some time or better yet, I hand feed them. If they really donít want to eat, Iíd give them supplements (Repti-Cal) mixed with water in a seringe till they get their appetite back. The dosage is really important, vitamins must not be on every meal but if she hasnít eaten for more than a week, Iíd highly recommend it. Remember that bearded dragons live in the desert so itís not unusual for them to miss a meal or two... Donít try too much and sheíll be fine.

They are not talking about the weather! Sometimes they get that way when shedding. Soak in WARM bath. How old? If over a year could be brumation. Post in bearded section. You will get answers.
