Bearded dragon licking and stress marks. Help!

Postby Zbaby42 » Fri Mar 27, 2020 4:27 pm

What does it mean when a bearded dragon licks you? Is it a sign of affection? Also when my bearded dragon is in his cage he’s gets a little darker like he’s stressed but when I get him out and start holding him the marks go away. What can I do to make him not feel stressed in his tank?

The licking is him tasting you --- mine do it all the time- -- how long have you had the dragon? The dark could be him absorbing heat as well

I’ve had him about two weeks. And he gets stress marks when he’s in the enclosure and when I take him out and hold him the marks goes away.

What are you using for lighting and what are the basking temps? How are you taking them? No stick ons! Are you using a coil for a UVB?
