New beardie owner

Postby Sbentle1 » Fri Apr 30, 2021 1:28 pm

Hello, I am a new beardie owner and couldnt be more excited. I have had him for 3 months. Im thankful for your forum and all the information Ive gathered on here to help me get started. He is doing well. I have him in a 40 gallon enclosure. Uvb and basking of 95 to 100. He is 9 months old on the 11th. Eats well and is eating greens and crickets and all the good stuff you recommend. My first concern was recently when his back leg turned a grey color and after reading up it looked like shedding but after a week and no shedding at all. His leg is turning back to normal.....super weird. Have no clue and cant find anything on it except shedding info but its not. Any ideas? He is not impacted he poops pretty routinely. Thank you! 🐲

Welcome to the forum -- please post a pic of his leg in question -- https://www.beardeddragon.org/useruploads/ click on XIMG at the top of the message box then click on the pic --- your UVB what are you using ? Brand and bulb? where in the tank is it? Basking temps need to be taken w/a digital probe thermometer and if your using a hammock for basking decor NO IR guns they do not give accurate temps

Best news ever!! My guy was shedding. It just started yesterday. I didnt believe it was shedding because it looked so wrong and took awhile but it was. Thank God!!
