Hiccup he is 5 and Blaze is 3
Hi all, I wanted to make this post to hopefully put my mind at ease. I am on the more paranoid side as my last and only other beardie was a neglected rescue (who sadly passed due to the neglect being severe), so I may be a bit too worried.
My lovely 10 month old girl (Sushi) finished her last shed about 3 months ago and has since only shed one back leg, her chin and around her mouth (this was around 2 weeks ago) and hasn’t shed anything else since.
Is this okay? How long until I should be concerned? She looks healthy to me, is eating and pooping well but is hiding away a bit more than usual (not too much). I’ll add a pic of her here.

- vivarium is 120x60cm
- 100w heat lamp
- Arcadia t5 14% uvb bulb
- feeders: rotates between locusts, dubia roaches, calci worms and occasionally wax worms
- veg: staples: spring greens, sweetheart cabbage, butternut squash. Occasionally: apple, cucumber, pak choi
- dusting food about 5 days a week
- temps range from (cool to hot) 31c-39c
-humidity around 30% usually

Dragons shed at different times and different areas- some take longer to shed off- your 14% uvb is in the tank or top of screen?

That's normal, as they slow down putting on size they don't shed near as often, and it becomes really patchy.

Surgery, Blood transfusion, Internal bleeding (potentially) not confirmed, Sudden onset anemia, potential aneurism etc. Echo stayed in the hospital overnight and the dr did not have good news when she called to update me today. I’m not 100% sure that I made the right decision by coming to pick her up (against what the dr recommended) but she was in far worse condition since having dropped her off. Help! 2nd opinion!?
The basking side of my tank isn't getting up to the suggested 100degrees. Does that mean I need to get a new basking light?
does her poop look healthy?
In your perspective does my baby bearded dragon look healthy or unhealthy? Does she look bloated? she is active and eats very well also she is in her basking spot all day
you know that feeling when you want to change your profile picture, but like you don’t want to lose the good one you have? That’s me, right now
