Normal or Clogged Femoral Pores?

Postby NovaStaar » Wed Dec 12, 2018 6:31 pm

My male beardie Frank is a male who is about 8 years old (he was rescued by a family friend so we aren't completely sure). I'm not sure if his femoral pores are clogged or normal. Here are some pictures.

The images might not portray this right but a few of the femoral pores in the center (right by the vent) have some excess wax on them and I am working on clearing those out. I brush them with a toothbrush in and after a bath. I am more worried about the pores further out on his legs.
I can't give him a bath every day currently because of school but I still bathe him at least once a week. Additionally, Frank despises baths and I cannot put any more emphasis on that fact. He will hide in the corner of the bathroom when he knows he is about to get a bath.

Here is Frank's.
If more pictures are needed, please ask.

Poor Frank, hates the bath's huh ? Well those pores aren't too bad, do you have rough surfaces in his tank to help wear those down ? Post a couple pics of his set up. Very warm baths sometimes help to soften those, but again, Frank's pores are not that bad. Here is a thread about a couple things that can help IF they start to bother him but right now those look O.K.

Hello,

Frank looks good! I don't really think those pores look all that bad. You could also get some
coconut oil to gently rub on them, to massage them into that area.
It doesn't seem to bother him & they don't appear irritated, either.

Thank you both for the reply. Here is his current tank if you still need the pictures.

This is the take that he has lived in for a majority of his life (it was given to us with him from his previous owners); however, I plan to make a larger tank this spring with plenty of rough surfaces and hides.
Thank you so much for the advice! :D Happy holidays!
