I've never visited this websight before but I started wondering if my lizard is really old and found this discussion forums.

He is 14 soon and I keep thinking when is he going to die and how will it happen? What is the most common way for bearded dragon to die and will that be soon? Thanks to anyone will some insight.

Hi there and welcome to the site!

14 is definitely up there in beardie age. Congratulations on that! Have you had him his whole life?

Well just like humans and age, it can happen a number a ways. The best you can hope for really is that they just start to slow down and pass peacefully in their sleep once night. Sometimes they will get sick in their old age as their bodies aren't as able as they once were. And sometimes organs fail with age. There really is no way of knowing how or when obviously.

By the way we would love to see pictures and hear more details about your buddy :)
