    Newbie Beardie Owner advice needed

    Hi All good to be here! Just got my bearded dragon from a family who can no longer look after him.. He's approximately 2 years old. I'm just worried that he is not touching his meals. Is there such a thing as a dragon still adapting to a new environment? The enclosure came with him too..Maybe he's just not used to the his new owners?
    I managed to feed him one blueberry. Is this normal? Thank you in advance for your advice.

    Post a picture up of your enclosure and how it's setup. Basking spot temperature is important too. If your dragon is not getting warm enough it will not eat.
