Open mouth and shedding

Postby Jaylenerose » Tue Aug 11, 2020 8:02 am

My Beardie keeps opening his mouth while he’s basking is this normal ? This is also the first time he’s going through a shed while he’s been with me and he’s about 3 months but he’s only shedding on his head. Any answers ?

He is thermoglating --- adjusting his body temp -- it is normal

Karrie already hit on the thermo-regulating which is normal. As far as the shedding rarely do any of my 6 go into a full body shed, its common for just one off the following areas to shed at a time in somewhat of a rotation. (Head, Legs, Body, Tail) It can even be just front or just rear legs sometimes.
