    Should I be concerned about his tail?

    I got a new beardie about 5 days ago and I noticed a notch at the end of his tail. I looked at a picture of him before we bought him and it's definitely there too. I need help knowing if there's actually something wrong and if I should be concerned?

    Beardie is 12 years old and laying eggs?

    This is my first time using a forum, so apologies if this isn't the right place. I have yet to find any answer similar to this online. My bearded dragon is around 12/13 years old. We got her in 2013 when she was already an adult. She has laid eggs for years now, all infertile obviously, but for...

    Hiding Behavior

    Hello! I’ve been concerned about my 1 year old bearded dragon over the last few days. He has been hiding more frequently than he used to. I started noticing the behavior late last month up through now. At first, I didn’t think anything of it, knowing that as an adult, bearded dragons tend to...

    Strange growth

    Hi, recently my bearded dragon has started to have 2 strange growths on his head. 1 on the top of his head one under his mouth. They look like spikes and are very hard. The skin around it has also gone somewhat flaky. Does anyone have any idea what this could be? Thanks,
