Default Help! Newbie alert!

Hi guys.. i'm new to this and new to reptile care !
My lovely other half came home with a present for me the other day, a bearded dragon. Nice surprise as i've warmed to him so quick, he's ace! (I've named him Gary )
The first day he was very active and was looking out and having a nosy, but for 2 days now he hasn't eaten and just wants to hide away and sleep. The previous owner said that he only likes to eat rocket leaf and morio worms and this is what i've tried to give him, but he's only eaten 1 worm and seems to turn his nose up at the fresh rocket leaves.
We're getting a bit worried now, we're not sure what's normal for a beardie.
Some advice would be appreciated muchly

Thanks, Jess

The first question you're going to be asked is to describe you're setup and temps in detail, and it's the right question too! Welcome.
