Healthy or clogged femoral pores?

Postby jme1210 » Sat Jul 18, 2020 7:36 pm

Hi! I just recently learned about my bearded dragons femoral pores after caring for him for 2 1/2 years. I feel horrible for not learning about them sooner, however there’s not much talk of them on the internet. I am obsessing over whether Philip’s femoral pores are healthy or clogged. It is SO hard to find photos of healthy pores on the internet. I hope one of you can help me! Thanks!!!
Also, I’m so sorry that i’m holding him by his tail. I promise he doesn’t really care when i do that he was just laying down on my boyfriend and I was trying to get a good photo of them LOL

Sorry, I don't know anything about femoral pores either, but wanted to see if you can post another back end shot at a bit of a diff angle so someone can verify that he's male.
The way you have the tail raised is good for getting a sexing pic, just can't see the bulges a male would have. And I'm sure you don't do it all the time. ;)
And hopefully someone else will chime in about the pores.

He's a boy and yes, the pores are perfectly fine. :)

He’s not a girl, I know that lol. The lumps aren’t that prominent on him but when i shine a light through the bottom of his tail you can see that he’s male! But thank you!! I was hoping his pores were okay. I was stressing about them for a while haha

I wondered the same thing. Charlie is 2, and I just adopted him a few months ago. I've been working on his enclosure and I'm being mom-paranoid about his overall health. His dark tail tip made me worry about tail rot (it's always been dark, per the previous owner) and there were some big questions about his sex....then I discovered there was such a thing as femoral ducts and sperm plugs. Charlie belongs to the library where I work, but I'm the "mom" who takes care of him. We've bonded and I want him happy and healthy. It's almost worse than having two teenage daughters at home! :lol:
