BEARDIE WEIGHT AND TAIL DENT?

Postby cascat » Tue Feb 11, 2020 12:17 pm

Hello, I have two more concerns about my bearded dragon. One is her weight, she eats well everyday but her hip bones near her back legs protrudes a little bit and I can feel them. Is that something to worry about? https://imgur.com/a/lVg0zZz https://imgur.com/a/cki9d3A https://imgur.com/a/938gQtE https://imgur.com/a/56vOgmZ https://imgur.com/a/fyh8E5g

The next thing is a tail dent. She's had this for a while and it hasn't spread or anything but the scales around it are greyish with a little black. She doesn't get fed crickets so I don't think she was bitten so I am confused about how she got this. Can someone let me know if it looks like something might be wrong? https://imgur.com/a/eDZuArz https://imgur.com/a/NAXYE9e

I am not sure - some one on here w/ more experience would need to look - but it could be just the way she's built- but let's have some one else look

Hi there, she looks good + hefty but are you sure it's not a male ? The big head , tail + build looks more like it although that's not always an accurate indicator of the sex. The little ban around the tail looks like it previously had retained shed which indented that area just a bit. If there's no current retained shed then it's not a problem. If you want to double check the sex you can post a pic here with the tail arched high like in this picture :

To me, seeing that picture on that article she looks more like a girl, I don't see two bumps but maybe one of you do?

Hello,

She is a good sized girl, absolutely. :D
I think she looks fine, great bone structure & physical condition. It is normal for the hip bones
to show some right there, it is essentially how they are built. There is some or a little bit of
padding at that area so I don't think she's too thin at all.
The tail could have had a bite or injury on it, or retained shed possibly. How long has the tail
looked this way?

Her tail has looked that way since August of 2018. I picked her up from boarding after vacation and she had that on her tail. It hasn't gotten worse, changed in color, or spread, it's just been like that for 2 years now.
