Help! Missing bearded dragon found after 2 months

Postby Michellegxo » Tue Feb 19, 2019 3:39 pm

Hello [Click image to enlarge]

So my boyfriend got a bearded dragon and lost it somewhere in the house ...About two months or so later we found the dragon just walking around the basement.
We've since put it in a tank and this was about a week or two ago.
From day 1 of her being in the tank she went from eating nothing to now she will eat a few crickets or a worm a day.
Her tail started to look really pale and like it was rotting.
I was afraid tail rot. However the tail is still complete together and it's not dark , I'm trying to get her to shed ans hope it's not tail rot.
Anyone have any tips or pointers for this?!

Most likely a tail shed coming on. Please if you can, post some pics of your dragon and it's enclosure, this will help us help you and your dragon.

You are now a slave!!!

Looks pretty good for being on it's own for two months.

Hello,

That is quite surprising just how well he/she looks for being lost in the house basement for
that long with little to eat or drink.
The tail is definitely going to shed, so give it time. The tail usually takes awhile to shed so
be patient. You can give a bath a few times a week to try & help out.
Please review your tank setup with us, just so we can be sure everything is all setup correctly
for him.
I'm glad he has been found!
