My three year old male bearded dragon Cheddar has been having some major problems lately and I don't know what to do. About three days ago I noticed that his beard was bigger then normal. Not like the normal flared up beardie beard, but BIG. The bottom of his beard has stayed big and black for the past couple days. When you touch it, it feels as though he's swallowed a golf ball. It's firm to the touch. He hasn't eaten in a day and a half which is not normal for him. The last time he ate he started thrashing around with his mouth open and collard greens in the back of his throat. This was the day after I noticed something going on with his beard. He also starts randomly thrashing his body around with his mouth open, causing him to fall of his basking stick. I'm really worried about him because I know that this is not normal behaviour. He has adequate heating and lighting and is in a 50 gallon Exo Terra. Anything is greatly appreciated. I love this little guy to the moon and back so I will do everything I can to help him.
