Bearded Dragon Dark Eyes!?!

Postby bbissell30 » Thu Dec 23, 2010 5:29 pm


My bearded dragon has dark circles under his eyes. I've looked everywhere online and only found dehydration as a possible cause. We have tried giving him baths and spraying him yet the circles are still there. They are not always present, moreso when we take him out of his tank or when he is in the bath. His behavior hasn't changed too much. I did move him recently to my parents for winter break. He is in the same tank with the same set up, just a different room. We haven't spent the same amount of time with him as we usually do, but we have still been getting him out once every day or every other max. He has been fed pellets since we got him, so no change in food or in tank temperature. He still eats the same amount, maybe more than usual. Help!

Also, he's had lines like he was about to shed on his tail, face, and back legs for over a week and hasn't shed yet at all.

There are many possible causes- or it could be totally normal. Stress marks could look like that. Picture!
