This is what I mean by wrinkly skin.

He also held his mouth open, which is odd considering he has never done it. A female beardie my old roomie had did when she was dehydrated and over heated :/

EDIT: almost forgot to mention, but the urinates are harder than they should be. Not rock hard, but a lot harder than the poo.

Mine has those wrinkles too on occasion, not that many though. I dunno..

Sometimes when my Beardie is sunning he keeps his mouth open. I think they can regulate their heat in that way.

Probably. I remember him having very little wrinkles and that was when he was turning around. Here he was chilling on my lap falling asleep

Found a sun-glo bulb chilling around my house. Then found a sun glo UVB 10.0. I did not know if it was dead or not so I screwed it into the fixture and it shattered in my hands -.- I'll take that as... "dead".

Oh yeah, there are no bulbs anywhere here in town. Wow. Unless you want to order in the heat and UVB duo bulb which is MASSIVE and 80.00 minimum. -_- So I'll just look for the non-heating but UVB giving bulbs.

How high should the number be? There's everything between 2.0 and 10.0

AAAAaaaand some pictures because I can ;)

So, my friend and her bf came over and he hand fed Jim. We got him to eat some sweet potato (not by his choice of course). Boy does he act like a reptilian baby turning his head away and backing away from that food But he finally took it (though he may have been aiming for fingers lol)

And this is him now, splayed out in an odd position, resting on the thermometer
