If you could just point him away, and lift his tail up, and post the pick.

Im not 100% sure, but they may be blocked femoral pores. I would give him a nice warm soak and see if they calm down a bit.

Best advice for a good pic-set your beardie on something so he can't run away, then lift up his tail and focus in on the area. It's still pretty blurry.

Ive just bathed him in warm water and they do seem to have gone down fairly rapidly.
Any idea what they are tho?

Ive tried to get a better picture but i cant, and now they have gone down they can not reli be seen on the pictures.

It looks pretty normal to me - and I remember hearing if it is male, they are more prominent? Well I am sure Tracy or someone who has more knowledge will answer soon.

Now that I look at it again, those do look like the femoral pores. They were discussing a more extreme case on this thread viewtopic.php?p=980184 Here's another bump so that hopefully someone with medical experience sees!

I think what you are seeing is the normal femoral pores of a male bearded dragon. This is part of his sexual equipment. They are more pronounced on a male. Don't squeeze or pick at them. They are a normal part of his "package".

yes, it just means you have to give him baths more often to help clear the waxy substance that often blocks them. Perhaps three times a week??

You can dry out your beardies natural oils with too much bathing. I, too, love to give my beardies baths several times a week. Buy some virgin coconut oil. Keep it in a cool, dark, area, like your cabinet. If it begins to spoil, you will know by the odor. Take a little bit and massage it into your hands. After doing this, you can then massage it gently onto your dragons skin. Be careful not to enter the eyes, mouth, ears, or nose. It is helpful with shedding, and it remoisturizes their skin. It smells great. It smells so good, you want to kiss your beardie all over! :D

It appears from the pics, that it is as the others stated: male femoral pores. Give your boy a hug and cuddle from me!
