I'm glad to hear that he is hanging in there. You mentioned that he was putting weight on
his leg but still wasn't moving. How is it looking, has the color changed on it?
Let us know how he is doing.

He is supporting himself with the leg. But still seems aggressive since this happen. Will notice in today's pic. Tried get a close up on his bad leg. Color hasn't changed in the leg. Not sure what to look for with a broken leg in a reptile. Bruising or any swelling. With these both aren't showing. Found a product online that I ordered help if pain is involved. Its called Serrapeptase just waiting for it to ship currently. Plus new bulb an platform so I can get this branch out of there. I used to put both in a cricket keeper large size. But he seemed aggressive towards his sister. So going to do it separately after today. Here's a photo I just took. Hopefully can see leg really hasn't changed. Image

Hello,

Noticed today the right rear leg is twice the size as the left? And with 97-99 basking temps is that good? Image

Baby basking temps should be 103-108.

Hello,

It appears his leg definitely was bruised, hopefully not broken! Is he able to put weight on
the leg at all, or is he avoiding using it?
Is he able to stay warm enough with his basking, were you able to get his lighting adjusted
for him also?
Serrapeptase is a great product, where did you order it from?

Keep us posted on him, I hope that he is going to recover.

Dude just take it to the vet, stop talking about the setup of the cage and whatever and take it to the vet. Seems like you don't care about your pet if you refuse to take it to the vet. No wonder it's mad at you, you sucked it up in a vacuum.

He is avoiding to use the leg. Still getting lighting adjusted. Basking temps are 90ish now. Not understanding the change with brand with a 100watt bulb. I ordered it from beardeddragon.co. also he had a very strange stool today. Never seen this before? Could his organs be shutting down. I took a pic before I cleaned it. Image

Ok good - you will haft to upgrade all your tanks- are you using coils for UVB's? Is it just him being aggressive? Lighting and basking temps control the behavior if it's just him he might be in pain causing aggressiveness

I have all the tanks. Just to small currently for the zen habitats I have to build still. I use a 100watt Megaray on the 40 gal breeder. An reptisun 10s t8's on the 20gals. Thinking it could be his leg causing the aggressiveness. He never was like this before this happen. Other two just like me to chase them around the tank. When its cleaning or feeding time. I only feed greens/veggies an worms in tanks. Crickets I do in critter keeper. Had a bad experience with free roaming crickets. My other two dragons are doing very good. Very active an good eaters. I'll post a photo of the other one. Just need upload it. Image

It was ✨ an accident ✨. Also vets can’t do anything for broken juvenile beardie limbs just as human doctors can’t do anything if you break your toe or rib.

It 100% was. Not seeing any other problems then the leg. Getting the t5 H0 reptisun 10 for best uvb. That i know of an can't do much with freezing temps. Because the sun is best uvb for any reptile. That and is very small to be kept outside with being a prey to a predator. I had a adult beardie outside before. But was always protected. I also removing the branch an replacing it with a ramp that's 4-5 inches tall. Looking to get a reptile lamp stand so I can adjust temps. I have socket with a clamp made for reptiles. But didn't help so I stayed with clamp lamp I been using. But if I can keep heat lamp flat an maybe a inch or so in tank. Temps should get to 105. Got a area to stay at 103 basking temps. But seems to like basking on the branch with temps in 90's. An didn't know vets can't help with a broken leg in this type of reptile.

Please refrain from personal attacks & instead focus on helping the OP with the current situation instead. Empathy & understanding go a long way!

Hello,

How is your dragon doing?
The stool doesn't look too bad, so are you talking about the grayish coloring? I don't see any
blood, correct?
Is he eating anything right now? If his entire leg is broken, they can set the leg & immobilize it
for help with it healing up. Try to keep everything easily assessable for him so he doesn't have
to work hard to bask, or get any food, etc.

Let us know how he is doing.
