    Scale rot?

    There’s always been this really dark line on Ziggys beard but recently it’s gotten darker. I noticed it’s only at the “root” of the scales. Is this scale rot or just natural coloring?

    Leaped on my face? xD

    Ziggy is doing great- hes active, alert, goofy, and more comfortable with being pet and held. He hasn't hissed in months. Today we tried to introduce him to our dog, but our dog (who has very puppy like behavior) was a little over excited and almost grabbed Ziggy's tail with his paw. Sooooooo we...

    Some health concerns; don’t know if this should be in ER thread or not

    The distance now is about 8 inches from the shelf to the uvb. Maybe 9. It was originally 6 inches but I asked my dad to cut it a bit so it would be shorter. He’s an awesome builder- he made it for Ziggy 😊 I’m glad to hear that the UVB doesn’t have to be above the basking spot- I was afraid he...

    No it’s one big screen. The plastic cross doesn’t come off either. It limits the amount of space for the heat lamp to be since the lamp can melt the plastic. here are some pictures. @KarrieRee @Drache613

    Yes, Reptisun 10.0 T8 17 Watts mounted inside of tank in a ReptiSun T8 Structure with reflector. I'm concerned if I should have it directly over his basking spot. It's a couple of inches behind. I can send a picture if needed. The thing is, the screen lid has a stupid plastic cross on it which...

    I give him kale occasionally, but I've heard it's not a good staple food. Any thoughts on the twitching and the other concerns?

    Thank you for your reply. I do have a ReptiSun 10.0 T8 and it’s placed inside the tank. It’s 24 inches. It is in the back of his terrarium and not completely directly over his basking spot because his basking branch is really close to the UVB light. Does that mean he’s not getting enough UVB...

    They are a five star exotic vet. I’m not sure SPECIFICALLY if she’s a reptile vet but they know all about exotic animals from iguanas to bunnies. She told me to feed him once a day because he was always impacted.

    Ziggy is about five months old. His basking temperature is around 95-105 and his cool side is around 75-85. Humidity can range anywhere between 15-40 depending on the day. If it’s low like 15 I put a humidifier in my room and close the door. He has the Reptisun 17 W UVB bulb. I dust his food...

    Does he have a swollen arm?

    Are you saying it is swollen? We literally JUST went to the vet a couple days ago that cost us over a hundred dollars... He fell only like a foot when I was holding him at my desk chair. He got scared of the chair moving so he ran across my arm, which is a smooth surface, and before I could...

    Does he have a swollen arm?

    He fell about a foot or two earlier off my arm today and has fallen once before but was fine. As soon as he fell he just walked again and chased some dubias. But just now i realized his limb. Am i just being paranoid?

    Ziggy, a juvenile, has a really bipolar personality.

    Yeah he's completely fine with feeding out of my hand, and today I put a cricket near the crevice of my arm so that he could climb on me and get it. He has done that a couple of times. But my own reflexes scare me because Ziggy has fast reflexes. I'm afraid of what his instincts can do. He will...

    Thank you, but how do you play with a beardie? I have a beardie ball but he’s not interested.

    Ziggy, a juvenile, has a really bipolar personality.

    Hey guys. Today Ziggy went to the vet because he has been impacted repeatedly for 5 days at a time, but the vet said I have been overfeeding him despite only feeding him once to twice per day. Anyway, Z was pretty stressed from the vet trip, so when we got home, I let him roam around my room for...
