Customer Question

Hi Anna. We have had our bearded dragon since April, he was about 2 mos old when we got him/her. He/She is always very active and eats really well. Today he has had three bowel movements and some leaky white diarhea. Now his beard is dark and he is lethargic and won't eat. We feed him crickets and kale everyday and some sort of fruit (apples, grapes, mangos, strawberries) everyday in addition to his crickets. He is currently 96 degrees and his tank is about 77 degrees, in the day and the basking light at night is less than that, I don't have an exact temperature currently. We started (about 4-5 days ago)feeding our crickets some orange cubed cricket food, before then we were just feeding the crickets apples. On Thursday we bought him a horned worm and he ate it and seemed to like it. Those are the only 2 changes we have made recently. PLEASE Help me figure out what is wrong with him.
