Baby dragon going up he branch and getting black

Not open for further replies.


Hi, I have a question about my beardy, when we put a branch in his terrarium, he goes on top of it and becomes really black. Like his whole body is black. We just removed it, and now he went inside a hide and became black. He's never black when we hold it and never when he's eating or chilling on the basking spot.

So my question is, why does he gets black when he go on that branch? Theres no UVB nor heat, but he stays there sometimes for no reason and becomes black. Is it because he's territorial? He's 10 weeks old, got him at 8 weeks.

Quick note: Right after eating he stopped being black.

Thank you !

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
