    Hi guys so I just got my first bearded dragons that I've had for barely about a week they're both about 3 months old. I have a male (Shenron) and a female (porunga) they are both from a breeder. So please help me out with any suggestions these past 2 days Shenron hasn't been basking too much and he's been sleeping a lot during the day he has stress marks too, which seem to darken pretty badly out of nowhere and this happens when I'm not bothering him. How long will it be before he accustoms to his new home. You should know when it's feeding time he is eating like a monster I mean it's like he's been awake the entire time!! Any reason why he would be sleeping during the day? Also my female she's fine no stress marks her belly is clean but her beard does have black lines that don't go away, she's really active BUT when it's bed time she doesn't sleep she actually gets up and starts glass surfing but(glass is covered) . Anything will help! Thank you for your time! ;)
