The dragon in the pic is the male? If so he looks overweight--- if your keeping those dragons together I recommend you separate them ASAP--- dragons are territorial and one will dominate every thing in the tank --- basking spots food etc ---- eventually they will start to fight -- please post a pic of the one that is not eating---

Hi again this is a picture of the underweight male he is layed flat in Thai photo so he looks ok and the vet said you can keep a male and female together as long as their 2 plus

Ok so the one pic you posted is the male? Vet is wrong about keeping them together -- usually they are kept together as hatchlings babie but it is also recommended that they be separated ASAP -- you end up w/ injured dragons missing tails missing toes etc sometimes death comes in a split second please post a pic of the other dragon -- I hate to say that but the pic you posted looks like the female and she looks like shes going to lay eggs-- fertile or infertile they can lay eggs -- and if shes been w/ a male your going to have babies from the way that dragon looks -

I see my lizard is being given Allopurinol 100ml tablet 10mg/ml (0.4) and tramadol 0.2ml every other day to help with gout. I have tramadol at home can I water it down and give it to her and if so do anyone know how much to water down ?
