Hello,

Ouch, that cannot feel good! What happened, do you have him housed with another dragon
who bit him?
If so, please place him in his own tank right now, since he is injured & will likely become more
stressed & bullied due to his injury.
Try to get some raw, unpasteurized or manuka honey to put on the area until you can get him
to a vet. Are you able to get him to a vet?
Go ahead & click on the XIMG function//button to upload your pictures to the Image composer.
Then, copy/paste the pictures to here onto the forum.

See that one foot that is swollen and bitten? That is the one. He was bitten by one of his brothers or sisters--I don't know which one. I stopped the bleeding and put him in another clean cage with paper towels as "bedding" and a water bowl, food bowl, small rock, and cave. This has heating and lights, yes. I use it for injured or scared beardies.

I hold him in a cage with my other 7 beardies. This one is one of the bigger ones. Their cage is pretty big. And tall. I'm not keeping them forever, remember that. I am simply keeping them there until they can be placed in good, loving, able and willing to take care of them people. Yes, they are super small for 8 months but I think that is because they are being housed with other beardies in a not-huge-tank. I am having trouble finding homes for them, but I already gave away 6.
