Beardie rolling eyes?

Postby reidfatherofdragons » Sun Jan 06, 2019 7:04 pm

Hi everyone,

My beardie is out of her tank hanging out with me. She's in my shadow, falling asleep on the floor. I moved my head and she woke up when the light hit her. Then I noticed she rolled her eyes in to the back of her head, exposing what looked like the mucus-y back part of the eye. She isn't spasming, she seems to be eating just fine, pooping ok, so is this a health thing or just her trying to sleep? TIA for any insights.


Update: She just bulged out both her eyes when I put her back under her heat lamp, and her beard flared up a bit and then everything went back down to normal. Is this just her shedding?

If really worried, best to not delay and take her to the nearest reptile vet for an assessment if this is still happening, if there is nothing to worry about the vet will tell you and send you and your dragon merrily on your ways.

They do bulge the eyes and flare the throat and beard when they are getting ready to do sheds on these areas.

This is her this morning. She seems to be behaving normally, no swelling or eye trouble.
