Why is my bearded dragon green? and more

Postby Heyitsb » Tue Nov 20, 2018 2:01 pm

Hello everyone, I just noticed that my dragons back and head are turning green and I am not sure of the cause. I heard dragons color could change during the time but I am still worried and want to make sure what it is. I also noticed in the middle of his head he has a grey spot that he has had for 4 days, is that a sign that he is about to shed?

I am really worried, :( I made sure everything is fine in his tank and he has been eating his food. I am about the change his UVB light but I am having a hard time finding an under the counter light fixture for it
He's also has a pattern where he stays in his hide all day and the next day he's alright and basking, Could it be because of the weather getting colder?

Hi there, sounds like he's going to shed but pics will be helpful. Here's how to post pics. :

As for the spot on top of the head, it's probably the parietal eye [ aka third eye ] Does it look like this ?

His skin looks normal to me. I see some dulling areas that look like patches that are about to shed but nothing unusual or alarming.

I agree, color looks perfectly normal. When they shed as they get older , it will be in patches so it will almost always look somewhat strange. He looks good + healthy though. :)

Hello,

I agree, he is most likely going to shed soon! They turn all sorts of different colors/shades
prior to shedding. He looks healthy though. :D

I agree. I think this little beardie is perfectly healthy. He looks perky and happy too. Does he have any other problems?
