Wierd Mouth Thing

Postby Afontana102 » Thu May 17, 2018 5:21 pm


My 7 month year old beardie is doing this wierd motion with his toung. He seems like he is trying to flick his toung at the sides of his mouth. It kind of seems like he has something stuck in his mouth.

Is this something anyone has sceen? Should i be worried?

My guy does that too when he's eating or drinking. I think it's just how they get everything down and clear their beard etc.

Mine do more exaggerated licking when they have a big piece of food or when they really really like or hate something. I think when they swallow flicking their tongue around mAkes more saliva in their beards to work on their food.
