Bath issue.

Estinien had a soak earlier but decided to dunk his face in and take some pretty big drinks. As soon as I noticed, I pulled him out and lowered the water level. Slightly worried about aspiration.

He isn't making any crakling noises while breathing and tipping him like a teapot didn't produce any water from his nose or mouth, what else should I keep an eye out for?

Him breathing hard- maybe a lot of coughing

Thanks, he was breathing in kinda deep right after in his bath but no coughing. This is him breathing now.

He seems to be fine -- just keep an eye on him if starts sporting a black beard then he could be in distress but I would think that would of popped right away --- just make sure his basking temps are good and hes got good UVB -- no coils please

I think as long as they do it on purpose they are pretty good at holding their breath. Chomp would actively swim in a bathtub and alot of time she would dunk her head and do so. I have also seen Ruby dunk her head when drinking although thats kindda rare she usually dont get her nose under the water.
One thing to remember though is that they use the same muscles to walk/run/swim as they do to breath. If the water is deep enough that they have to swim they can aspirate really quickly. (Not saying that you do that, just a word of caution)

So freaking handsome I just love youuuuu so much 💕
There is something wrong with my beardies left eye!! I included a picture where it shows what her right eye looks like then the others are what her left eye is. She always has it closed (as much as she can) and she finally opened it for a bit when i misted her. I don’t know what i could be doing wrong and it’s not from sand because she doesn’t have it in her cage.
