    I think my dragon is ill

    Hi, just wondered if anyone can help I recently bought a dragon and he doesnít really eat his vegetables but I give him 6-10 crickets a day with calcium powder earth pro and calcium D3 he always hides under his rock which I donít know if this is normal? His temperature on his warm side is 105 degrees Fahrenheit and on the cool side is 88 degrees fahrenheit and he will not drink any water at all I pinched his side to see if it goes back immediately and it does not. I cannot get him to eat greens or drink any water he has had 2 poos in the 3 days I have had him and I wondered if anyone knows what the problem may be if there is one?

    Before posting that you need help, let the poor thing settle in to its new surrounds for a good week or two. As far as it not eating vegies, don't stress as protein is more important. Try dripping water on its nose as they don't recognize standing water. If in 2 weeks, you're still worried, off to the vet but I honestly believe it will come good if you let it settle

  3. Thanks tiegan.shaw thanked for this post
