Possible for rick to answer.my beardie had a shed that lasted over a week and hasn't eaten much since.she is eating greens a little and still will eat worms.not eating locusts.can she slow down as it is our winter,I have reduced her light/heat to 11 hours on 13 hours off.still comes out everyday and seems happy.not lost weight and still pooing.is she just sensing that its winter here in the UK and has slowed down.she did eat a good 30-40 medium locusts and lots of worms before her shed.I assume she may be living off fat stores.still alert and moving about.any tips advice welcome.

oh and i think she is roughly 9 months old could be a bit younger.

Almost certainly just slowed down for winter. The other common cause for this is intestinal parasites so you may want to get a poo sample checked if you're concerned see this post viewtopic.php?f=3&t=9783 otherwise just continue as is this year and her appetite should look up in a few weeks.
