I've had my rankings dragon for about a month and just over the last couple of days he's started to hide and sleep during the day for long periods. Is this normal? He dug under his veg tray one day and slept, he keeps digging around his cage and yesterday he went into his rock house and slept most of the afternoon. He's eating normally.

Pet Dragon Info:
Rankins: Mitzi (F).
Beardies: Luca (M), Mocha (M)
Blue Tongue Skinks: Teal (F), Cinnamon (?)
Giant Mexican Horned Lizards: Linus (M), Louis (M)
Uromastyx: Brian (M), Chloe (F), Kora (F), Kami (M), Melody (F), Murray (M), Omar (M)
Usually with something like this it's either brumation or parasite infestation. Parasites are a lot more common than you might think (they get them from their food).

How is his appetite? Is he eating normally, or less than usual?

What is the temperature like in his enclosure (basking and cool zones)?

Best regards,
Mark
