Hi, my names Destiny I have a bearded dragon named Irma idk if I’m doing this right but can someone please help. She’s been doing this thing with front left foot where she’s violently scratching against things then she will look at it and try to bite her nails like something hurts or bothers her it’s kinda like how females move their feet when a male is on top of them it’s like that but with one foot and idk if there is something stuck or if it hurts her idk can someone please help. It’s like she’s trying to get something off @ first I thought it was the nail polish but then wouldnt she be doing it with all her feet??? So I’m confused someone please help

Can you post a few pictures of her foot & toes ?
She might have some shed stuck to her toe.

That’s what’s irritating your Beardie. I would try to get the polish off with a qtip & a small amount of remover. You will probably need to wash it off all her feet. The remover might irritate her skin. Hopefully she is not biting her toes off. She looks like a lovable dragon. Please don’t paint nails again.

. Yes
What type of nail polish? If it is the normal kind then yes it's irritating.

Guys, this is a learning lesson and should be a warning spread to all owners who use polish. Although it seems innocent enough and most polish is non toxic, beardies may instinctively bite at it, whether out of curiousity or because it looks like something to eat. Don't polish their nails, it may look cute to us owners but is irritating and possibly harmful and does nothing for the beardie.

I have to say I haven't done that in a long while and thankfully the one I used washed off very easily in one or two baths.

But If It actually does irritate them I will stop It (which I Basically have) . Thank you for your Info. :)

. I didn’t what you said and took off all the nail polish but she’s still doing that thing with her hand I don’t think it was the nail polish couldn’t it be possible she has something stuck in her foot ?
