well i have a female frill dragon that i recieved back from my friend (who posted up about silk worm juice out of the nose) and i built her a nice lil vivi and scenery and she seems to be doingg great, basking and everything. very very active. the first 5 days i had her back she was eating, only when i offerd her food she'd frill, strike, and eat, and each day she got worce with her am and eventualy striked, missed and just ran away not to try again. now she just wont eat, i've left silk worms in there for her for days, a bowl of her fav, super worms, crickets (that got out and now are roaming the house) you name it i've tried it, even force feeding her flukers emergency care yesterday because she looked dehydrated.

she is overall doing fine. only she wont eat, most of the time her head is purked up and she isnt in fear and slouched showing signs of stress, her enclosure's front is coverd so she cant see out and handleing has been at a minimum.
she has had a fecal done when i first got her and she was clean.

when i got her back she was 130 grams at 5.5 inches snout to vent(which is slightly more then typical)
and now she's 115, she looks at a healthy weight and she does soak in her water so she doesnt look dehydrated.

what do you guys think? what should i do if she's not eating no matter what?


my friend didnt have an issue with her eating, i even added a MVB and that made her alot more active, temps are 85-95 with basking branch sloped up and highest temp is 115, but she ususaly doenst bask as the temps are so warm already, i only see her basking in morning.
humidity: 35 in morning, 85-95 after i spray, and 65 by time lights turn off at night.
night temp is 75-80
