One eye closed one eye open

Postby pmullins1 » Fri Feb 14, 2020 2:52 pm

Hello... this is my first time posting on here so bear with me! Anyways, I have got a baby beardie that is about 4 months old and he is starting to shed on his head, I noticed today when I was giving him a bath he had one eye closed and one open. I have never seen him do that before but I kinda just let it go. A couple hours later I sprayed him with some water to help with the shedding, I picked him up and I noticed that right when I picked him up he closed one eye. Is this because he is getting water in his eye? Or is there something wrong?

Hi there,

This is a very common behavior of there's. There is a thread in this section titled the trust game, which goes into a bit of discussion and theory behind it :)

Yeah that's normal. Parts shed as they grow so sometimes the shedding is in patches or only certain areas. :)
