Hi everyone! My family is new to reptiles and I just want to make sure our beardie is happy and comfortable! I've read about black beard and although his beard is not completely black it looks a bit black with some orange in it also.. is this normal?

The black on there neck is all about mood, if they get black and puff up they aren’t in the best mood. But it’s completely normal so don’t worry! He looks like my baby!

Hes fine looks like some coloring w/ some possible shed coming on ---- you will know when he has a black beard they will go jet black when in distress / pain or mating --

I agree your beardie looks fine, that doesn't actually qualify as a black beard. Both males + females can get a black beard for the reasons already mentioned [ males getting much darker and sometimes extending to the chest ] but a very slight shade of grey is normal or can be present when shedding. Beards can be a slight tint to a very bright solid yellow, orange or red. Do you know for sure what sex your dragon is ?

I am new and looking for a teen beardie. I have been doing a lot of research for about 2 years.
I'm new here but not new to dragons or snakes. Over the 7 years. I opened my heart and home to neglected. unwanted dras and snakes, some critical conditions. Then nursing them back to health and their final family home. I regularly help my reptiles vet with emergency appointments and I also provide the care in my little quenteen,
