I just got a juvinile bearded dragon about days ago.Its probably about 5-6 months old. He was light in color compaired to the others in its tank, but seemed healthy. Got him home and he was very social. Now it's shedding, and EXTREEMLY lethargic.Tonight while holding him he barely moved. He didn't eat his crickets today. I don't think he touched his salad. Tomorrow I'm going to bathe him and see if it helps. Would the shedding process and stress of a new home cause this reaction? I don't think there is impaction because he has been having bowel movements. He seemed fine until yesterday, and this morning I at first thought he was dead, I couldn't tell if he was breathing. After I checked on him he ran around for a little bit,but seemed sleepy after that.

    Bearded Dragons become very lethargic during a molt.  They will also molt less frequently as they mature.  Do not under any circumstances try and hlep your bearded dragon molt fast by pulling or attempting top ull of the skin.  You could kill him.  He needs to do it at his own rate and timetable.  You can spritz him very gently with a little warm water or possibly just let him walk around in a very shallow dish with warm water but do not BATHE him.  If you pulled essentailly dry skin off sunbrun - it would hurt.  If you tried to rub it off, it would hurt.  So let him go at his own speed, he will be fine just makes him tired.  Lot of work.

hey, my little brother got a baby leopard gecko at a reptile show, it is about 3 1/2 inches long (I'm geussing, don't have a ruler) and all he does is sleep all day and I thought that baby lizards were suppossed to be out going, it's beginning to worry me because I can't tell if he is drinking and he could be getting dehydrated.

    Geckos do tend to just hang out.  Make sure to mist the tank as they will drink the dropplets.  What temp are you keeping the tank.  They do move less if it isnt warm.

Hello everyone. I'm looking into getting some live plants for my frogs aquarium. I have a red eyed tree frog, love him to death and his name is Mr. Red. :)

I've been trying to look online to see if there are places to buy plants from but I don't want to have the possibilities for having fertilizer or unhealthy stuff in the plants for my frog. So I'm curious if anyone knows personally of a site online that sells the type of plants my frog likes that are also safe for my frog.

Thanks, and love this site. :)

    Choose broad leaf varieties of plant that can support the weight of the frog. Some suggestions include snake plants (Sansevieria), many bromeliads, pothos ivy, some philodendrons, Japanese evergreen, java moss, Anthurium, Mongtera species and creeping figs. Remember, plants will require a full spectrum bulb for growth. The Red-Eye Tree Frog does not require any special lighting, so make sure you provide hiding or shade spots in your enclosure.

I don't mean to pester you, but I'm interested in obtaining a female damon variegatus. If you could contact me at some point about availability that would be great.

I have many exotic pets. They enjoy our interactions during feedings. I give them all large cages with live plants and the best possible environment. The less I handle them the happier and more comfortable they become. Why does every pet have to be scratched behind the ear or be taught to say 'polly wants a cracker'. Don't say it's for anybody's safety.
