Hi, so my beardie is currently about 6 months old right now and I still can't figure out what it's gender is? I also noticed that it's bum seems to be quite dirty (his belly looks the same color too but i checked in different lighting and it is not that dirty color) and needed help on figuring out what to do. I just got them a new cage not too long ago (75 gal) so I haven't been able to get tiles yet, so all I've had was alfalfa pellets (I know I really don't want to be using them but I'm not sure what else I could use) so I'm thinking that it might play a part in its bum looking dirty?? I just gave them a bath today but I don't know I just need some good advice and help.

Hi goose, that's a patch of unshed skin [ very common and not a problem ] , not dirt. I can probably tell you the gender but you have to set him on a flat surface and arch the tail in the air. Here's a pic of what I mean :

Good picture ! Looks like a female. Being that they are 6 months old it's pretty reliable to sex a dragon at this age but put up a pic again in 3-4 months and see if it's changed any. But it does seem female from this pic.

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 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
is tape safe for fixing something in my leopard geckos hide?
Day 3 of brumation. It's a struggle. I really miss my little guy. 😔
Mirage entered brumation yesterday, I'm gonna miss hanging out with my little guy.
