Bumps? And stuck shed not removing.

Postby Mysticbeardie » Thu Feb 13, 2020 5:36 pm

Hello so I was letting my friend love on my besrdie the other day and they pointed out to me that my beardie has bumps alone the underside of her hind legs I didn't think much but there is what looks to be scales or something in it, I'm not sure if its normal or not and I don't know how to post pictures if someone could help that would be great, I've also noticed that this week after shedding she has stuck shed on her feet and tail tip soaking her isn't helping and I'm at a loss for what to do, I know stuck shed can be dangerous so any tips could help.

(When I lightly squeeze the bumps it's like whatever is in them is trying to come out.)

Hi there,

To post pictures, you can upload them to the site here:
https://www.beardeddragon.org/useruploads/
And then copy and paste the XIMG code to your post.

Look up "femoral pores" Are those what you are seeing?
Very very common. They are more pronounced in males though.
I would definitely not squeeze them if they are infact femoral pores.

Feet and tails tend to shed really slow, so the shed tends to take longer in those areas anyways :)

I read about that somewhere before I think it sounds really familiar and when I looked it up a video of a guy 'cleaning them out' popped up is this something that is supposed to be done or not?

Here's the best picture I could get with her not wanting to sit still.
