Hi, can anyone tell me why my beardie wants to stay in one corner of viv all the time. She could still be settling as i've only had her a week. She is awake and alert but does not eat her green either.

It can take beardies up to 2 weeks to settle in, during this period try not to handle him too much to help him settle in quicker. Is he hiding in the cool side of the viv? If so try and move him across to bask if you can. If he is hiding under something then I would remove it to ensure he is getting 12 to 14 hrs of UV and maybe provide him with something that he can hide behind if he needs to. What are the temps inside the viv?

Hi don't worry about eating greens at the moment, when he (or she) is settled and eating well you can try to encourage greens then :D
