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 feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
