Baby beardie sudden eye problem

Postby EttaJamesMom » Thu Feb 07, 2019 3:28 am

Up until yesterday, my baby (2.5 months) was doing well after a rough start with food. She has been loving her roaches and grew 1.25 inches and has now started her very first shed since I got her 4 weeks ago! Last night, she was fine. A friend got her out to hold her and the hold seemed ok....maybe a bit of pressure on the belly, but couldn't quite tell. Today, my beardie has barely opened her eyes. One she will open more, but one remains closed almost permanently. When she has opened it, it looked normal from what I could tell. She ate breakfast and just ate dinner (roaches) but has been lethargic today. Is this possibly due to shedding? Something else? What should I do?? Thanks!

No , that's not related to shedding.

I'd have reptile vet examine your little hatchling is she's still like this and not behaving normally today.
May have been injured internally by being squeezed too hard. The little ones are incredibly delicate and very easy injure.

No more friends handling her from now until she's bigger and more robust.
