black marks on sides of neck

Postby nattieblack » Tue Sep 20, 2011 4:11 pm

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

hi, i adopted a 1 yr old beardie about a month ago. he had only been eating mealworms and crickets-undusted-nothing else. i knew he had some issues, he didn't poop very much and had very little color to him. i switched out the mealworms immediatly, started dusting his crickets and feeding superworms and a few waxworms a few times a week. he has gotten alot more color and is more active, pooping maybe every three days instead of once a week, so he is getting better, but he has fairly dark marks on each side of his neck-not sure what that part is called, i am still new to his anatomy-should i worry or will it get better over the next few weeks?
thanks for any help,
nattie

Sounds like you are referring to the dragons shoulder pads.

If Thor gets upset or mad, he hasn't black bearded yet but, his shoulder pads get black as they can get.
Other then that what KitsuneGem said :wink:
