Also my bearded dragon named Star-lord Has has been opening his mouth while basking recently and at night he makes almost a wheezing sound. As I type he is running in and out of his water, then Glass surfing, then repeating. When I see him open his mouth and I go over to him he closes it, And he only does it while hes on his hammock, which is under his light. He is completely white but changes to dark gray when stressed. He is currently a cream white, but his beard is jet black. He has never puffed up at anyone and is fed 4-6 super-worms every 1-2 days and is provided fresh veggies daily. He also rubs his nose on his blanket and Im not sure why. Does he have a respiratory disease? :cry:
Last night he wounldnt lay down so I let him sleep with me under a blanket. Was that Okay? Ive done this once before and he seemed fine. :? :shock: :!: :?:

How long has his beard been black and his body white? If that happens for an extended period of time it could mean he is in distress. Can you post some photos of him and his setup? You can upload photos here https://www.beardeddragon.org/useruploads/ and post them to your thread using the XIMG button when you reply.

This is his set up. To the left is his climbing log, his store-bought veggies because I didnt have time to cut him up any yesterday, his fake plant and water. To the right is his hammock, AKA his basking area. His light is from Zoo med, special 2 bulb value pack, 75W. He has a black light in there that just gives off heat but no light, and that is for nighttime. His light is on but I turned it off for the picture

If you have a coil UVB please replace w/ this
Which UVB light should I use?
The best UVB light is a ReptiSun 10.0 fluorescent tube HO (Or Arcardia 12% in the UK). Compact or coil bulbs do not emit the proper amount of UVB light for a bearded dragon, and should not be used. Other brands, such as the Zilla Desert Series and ReptiGlo have been known to cause eye problems and other health issues with bearded dragons, and should be avoided. The reason that some UVB lights (Zilla, ReptiGlo, coils/compacts, ect.) are considered dangerous is because the wavelength of UVB that they emit is shorter and more intense than the wavelength of the "safe" lights (ReptiSun, Arcadia). UVB lights should be replaced every 6 months. The T5’s are a strong bulb and only need to be replaced once a year – the T 8 every 6 months--- where as the T 8 are not as strong—they need to be placed inside the tank the T 5 10.0 bulb approx 10-11 inches from basking spot – the T 8 approx 8-10 inches from basking spot—the cover needs to be off the bulb for full effect of the UVB rays-- these lights the basking and UVB are crucial for the over all health digestion and behavior--- please get your UVB replaced ASAP-- him rubbing is nose is probably an itch keep an eye on him for shedding-
