I moved your thread so now it is in the ER section as it's more fitting of a section than health.

Could your roommate have given him something too big? Or have you not be able to get ahold of him yet?

At least in the picture he looks nice and bright colored and basking. That is a good sign.

For now I would just keep letting him bask, and try to keep him around 80 overnight if you can.

And then hopefully we get more answers from your roommate when you get ahold of him. is he still breathing weird?

I wonder if the big one is stuck in the throat.

Can you see anything of you look in his mouth? Based on the picture, something definitely seems like it's in there unless he normally looks like that.

I'm almost sure that he has the cricket stuck in his throat now that you know he was fed a large one.

If you're uncomfortable handling him and trying to remove it, I would look into seeing if you can go into a vets real quick and have them do it. If by off chance it is a respiratory infection instead, you'll still be at the right place for treatment.

Beat case scenario would be he regurgitates it up himself. If not, there is a possibility it will continue to break down and eventually be swallowed. But if not, I'm sure you can imagine how it could lead to complications.

My roommate isn’t home so I’ll get an answer for you in a few minutes but to answer your question, no it’s not black breading it just looks swollen. And no he didn’t give it a bath. It’s only almost 4 months old and I haven’t bathed it yet..

Never had a bath?! U want to give your beardie a bath once a week that's how to get alot of water is their soaks and warm water helps digest things. Their naturally potty trained by nature warm water = poop invest in bee pollen it's an anti inflammatory and a natural antibiotic and helps their digestive track and maybe he is rubbing his beard becuase it helps maybe you should do that with your finger on his beard

Maybe hes dehydrated you said you never gave him a bath they tend to have stringy saliva when dehydrated maybe that's cause bubbles maybe just an educated guess
