Hello,

I apologize that no one has responded to your question sooner. Different experts come online at various times. I just came online and saw your question. My name is Anna, and I'm a biologist with a special interest in reptiles. I'm sorry to hear of this problem. If you still need help, some additional information will be useful.

What are all the foods you have provided? Any supplements?

What are the temperatures under the basking light and on the cool side of the enclosure?

What types of lighting and heating equipment do you have (brand names if possible)?

What substrate do you use on the floor?

Has your beardie been passing any droppings?

Thank you.

Anna
