[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

My beardie is about 1yr old.Has seemed to be in good health. a few days ago i saw 2 black spots on his chin by his beard didnt think much of it .yesterday his whole under chin and beard we black, almost to the top of his front legs.He a seems to be acting normal,eating normal.Is this normal or is he ill.Now this mornin when i got up he looked fine except for the 2 black spots. I feed him wax worms,crickets all dusted and gut filled,along with veggies and some of the fortified mix from the pet store.Does he need to see the vet.I just want him happy and healthy. Thanks in advance for any input.

no pic available,i didnt think to take one yesterday.now he's back to normal except the 2 black dots.my wife did soak him last night for about 15 min. my daughter had looked up on-line he might be dehydrated and that could be the cause.I did bath him sunday and he has a water dish. Is dehydration a possible cause,what else could cause this condition?

i do not think dehydration would be the cause of this. Besides if he has a water bowl and regular baths once a week they won't get dehydrated.

Not too sure. Perhaps you can search on google and see if you can find a similar condition to your dragon. If you are really worried about it then take it to vet.

Hello! Could you describe or even post a pic of the two black dots on your beardie's beard? Are they tiny black dots? Have you noticed the black dots any where else on your beardie?
Have you gone over your set up with anyone to make sure everything is up to par?
