Bump in front of lower jaw (pics)

Postby KimberleyAnne » Wed Jun 05, 2019 4:04 pm

Hello! We noticed a day or two ago that our adult beardie has a pinkish-red bump inside his mouth. He’s eating normally and has been extra active since coming out of brumation recently. Does anyone have any ideas what this might be? Should we be worried?

Nothing has changed as far as lighting, temps, diet, etc.

Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated!

Hello,

That looks like he may have bitten the fleshy portion somehow, or sustained some type of
bite from a superworm or cricket possibly.
Does it seem to be bothering him any?

It doesn’t seem to bother him. He’s been non-stop headbobbing, glass surfing, and climbing around his viv since brumation so there’s definitely been opportunity for him to injure himself.

I thought we might keep an eye on it for a few days, thinking if it’s swelling it may go down on its own but am more than willing to take him to the vet if it needs treatment.
