Black belly what should I do?

Postby Cat620 » Sat Mar 06, 2021 11:34 am

I just got a beardie today from a reptile expo. I noticed it’s stomach is black. Should I be worried? Or is this normal because of the stress from travel?

This is my beardie. ... _small.jpg

I could be wrong, or it could be the picture, but the tummy doesn't look terribly black to me. It could be travel stress; put him in his hab and try not to handle him for a few days to let him settle in. That was the advice I was given when I first got my beardie, and it seemed to work out for him. :)

You bought it from an expo so I imagine you got the information on what morph(s) your dragon is right?

Is your dragons trans?
