[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

Hi i have been searching for a blue beardie for a very long time and i finally found some pictures of one..I was wondering if anyone knows where to find this type of beardie..It would be a great help if someone knows a breeder or is a breeder.. willing to pay top dollar for one.

Most that are this dark as babies will lighten up with each shed. I have never seen an adult beardie with still deep dark blue coloring but I guess its not impossible. Maybe some one more experienced knows more than myself.

Sorry but there are no blue beardies. The dark greyish blue some babies show will not stay, it always fades away.

There must be something wrong with my eyes . . . all I see is a stressed out baby beardie eating. I can't see any blue tint. Is something wrong with my eyes?

No, there is nothing wrong with your eyes. Its not really blue but a dark slate gray, on my monitor it looks a tad blueish but almost every hatchling I've seen is that color. It usually fades in a few days but I've seen some retain the color for a couple months.

anyone else notice the substrate stuck to the babies tongue in the pic with the grape? Hope the little fellow doesn't get impacted.

Not to mention the grapes are probably coated with crushed walnut shells.

yeah that is just a normal

there are breeders that are working with a strain that appears lavendar (translucent) but its uncertain if that color will eventually fade out as most trans become quite dull once they get older. in all honesty why do you want a blue dragon. you know what has to happen to create a new color correct? line/inbreeding is the normal practice when trying to create a new color or morph within the bearded dragon world. than it takes a few generations to work out the crap that that caused and even then you get numbers of them that have big health problems. i say just stick with what we already have in the market instead of hoping for yet another abomination of the p. vitticeps.

Check with bloodbank.com. I've seen blueish greens from them. Around $700 dollars though. Good luck

The only blue dragon I have ever seen was dyed that color from being on blue sand.

I fell for the "blue" baby beardie thing too when I was first starting out.......my "blue" baby ended up being yellow. :? So blue side bars is about all the blue you can currently get
