Can anyone help me about my dragons claw? I just noticed this when giving him a bath and I’m pretty sure it hasn’t been like this for long should I take him to the vet?

more than likely it is because the nail is so long. it doesn't look damaged or anything like that. there are tons of videos out there on how to trim them. you just cut off the thin, pokey dagger part at the end. some dragons are chill with that, others aren't. we always wait until sir henry is super passed out asleep and then do his.

I read some other post and I think he might have got it caught in his hammock because none of his other claws are like crooked like that. I do cut his nails I just haven’t cut this one because I think it gets irritated because he always moves his claw away when I try to cut it.

What kind of hammock? Grass and the green mesh are notorious for getting nails caught- you can swap it out for a fleece or cloth - www.etsy.com or www.pamperedbeardies.org

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
