Anyone know what color morph if any he is?

Postby Spider8ait1994 » Tue Mar 31, 2020 4:28 pm

As the title says I’m wondering what color morph my newest boy is if he’s any at all.
I have almost no background info on him as he was a rescue from previous owners who didn’t have or provide any information as to where they got him or the like.
We think he’s 1-2 years old.

I apologise about the first image. It seems the site decided to upload this one upside down for some reason.

I’ll take some photos of his tank setup in the morning because he’s just sleeping at the moment.
He has a ceramic heating coil that doesn’t emit light. This stays on 24/7 though if the temps get too high if we’re having a hot day I switch it off for a bit. He’s also got a mercury vapour UVB bulb thats on all day.
The temp range is around 30°C - 33°C and the humidity is around 40%.
I’ve also built an outdoor cage out of wire mesh panels and on sunny days he has time outside to get some natural sun and go to the bathroom on the grass.
He’s darker in those photos because he’s out in the sun there and I think most of the darkness on his beard is just shadows.

I agree, his darkness looks just to be from darkening up to warm up. There is nothing wrong with that. Perfectly normal. You should see one of my guys when he darkens.

As far as your original question, he looks like a normal to me :)

Hi there, good looking big boy you have there. :) Males are hormonal this time of year, one of my boys has a black beard on + off through the spring + summer. That's really great that you have an outdoor cage, the sun is so good for them. Your dragon is a normal/standard but definitely has a very cool look with his yellow under tones on his head and the dark barring. Only thing you might need to adjust is his basking temp., try to get it up to about 36 -38 celcius. The cool end of his tank is fine at around 25C.

Ok so here’s the photo of his tank setup.
As for the brand of his MVB it’s a Reptizoo super sun 75 watt.
The ceramic heating coil is a Reptile One 100 watt.

That looks good , although bigger is always better but since he gets to go outside that makes up for it. :)
