Customer: Hi. We have two female bearded dragons that are approx. 6-7 months old. We have been online trying to figure out what might be wrong with one of them. She has been totally healthy & active & eating/drinking great...up until today. All of a sudden, she is lathargic, her tail is turning black, & her body is quivering all over (looks like muscle spasms). The only thing we can think of is that we fed them both meal worms yesterday (for only the second time). This particular lizard apparently ate a LOT of them (says my 12 year old-who's the 'owner'). She is acting just horrible & twitching all over. Can you suggest anything?? Did we overfeed her (maybe too big of mealworms? or too much?)??   Thank you...my son is in tears...any advise would be appreciated.

Hi,

Can you tell me about your set up?

Substrate?

Diet? Greens/Prey?

Supplements?

UVB light? How old?

Temps and how measured?
