It's OK.

I understand your mistake.

What did I expect in 5-minutes of writing...William Shakespeare?? Ha ha.

(See above post to understand my "knee-slapper).

::Here's a couple of things to keep in mind:

::1) Sometimes, in the span of ONE DAY...your animal will change his character. One day he'll be really cool withh you...and the next day he'll be the cresty from hell. I don't know why this happens, but it happens to almost every species of reptile. From cresty's, to beardies, to white throat monitors, etc.... (I guess it's kinda like puberty)??

::2) If you're gonna take him to the vet, don't forget to take a FRESH stool sample. If it's still "steaming" in that cold winter air...you've done good. (Ha ha).

::3) At 4 to 5 months of age, he's still growing. (That's also the age of my cresty, as he's 4 months, 2 weeks old).

::4) I hope that he's OK. To me it sounds as if though he might smell your beardie, or he's just growing-up and his character is changing a bit.

::Keep us posted.

::In Christ: Raymond

:::Thanks for you post!!
:::I do appreciate your help.
:::It is weird though because he never was like this before.
:::I have had him for 4 - 5 months now. He only started acting like this when I got my Bearded Dragon. I can understand it if he was new, but he isn't new and he was NEVER like this. Now he isn't eating. I think I am going to take him to the vet.
