Hi my bearded dragon has barely been eating the past week or so. He is still active and alert and doesn't seem to be losing weight. I'm just not sure what the problem is. It is almost fall  where I live. Could the season be the reason? He is 11 months and 20in. Please help!

Answer
Hello, it could possibly be the season but usually they don't brumate until the winter season comes around. Its a good sign if he remains active and alert but there's no sure way to tell if anything is wrong without seeing a vet. I would rule out parasite or infection if he is still as active as before. But you need a vet to check him over.

Expertise

I can answer every question towards the bearded dragon except for questions that deal with sickness and disease. I can answer questions on heating and UV rays, the questions pertaining to food, habitat, bedding, breeding, egg/hatchling care, nature, and attitude are my best. Last, I cannot help you with at home sickness meds, always find a vet within your area. I can answer questions regarding body language and movement. I will try to help you to the best of my ability.

Experience

I have owned bearded dragons for over seven years and have been a breeder for two years. Caring and raising bearded dragons has been a great experience in my life and will continue to play a big role throughout my life.
