Hi! My beardie's toe looks a little weird and kinda looks broken? I'm not completely sure if that's the case though. He is fine when I lightly touch it though and is acting like his normal self. I'm a bit worried so if anybody can help that would be greatly appreciated!

That doesn't look right. I agree with Karrie if there's a grass or green mesh hammock take it out. What is the tank setup? Is there anything else that may have caused that?

Looks off -- are you using a green mesh hammock or grass one? If so please take it out - or green reptile carpet? What type of uvb are you using coil or a long tube fixture?
I do not have any of those thing and I use a long tube fixture. I'm not sure what could've caused it.

Hello,

How long has this toe looked this way? It definitely appears off, but it doesn't seem to bother
him when he walks around, etc or when you touch it?
What type/brand of UVB light do you use?

Hello! I am pretty sure it happened sometime today (01/08/24) but not exactly sure when. But it does not seem to bother him at all. I use a reptisun 10.0 UVB tube light

Make sure your UVB is correctly placed for the screen on your tank - if its a fine mesh like a screen door it needs to be inside the tank 12-15 inches directly above the basking decor - wide hole top of screen 8-10 inches -- the bulb should not be older than 10-11 months unless your getting good UVI readings from a good solar meter --

Hello,

If it just happened, you could consider trying to set it if
possible, with using cardboard encircling the finger then
taping it up gently for a bit to see if you can get it to
straighten up some. Or you can use toothpicks too,
that works as well.

Hello,

Just checking on your dragon's toe, has it improved some? Were you able to make a little cast
or tape it up a little bit?
Let us know how things are going.

Hi sorry there haven't been updates. He went into brumation and I really don't want to disturb him.

Hello,

Oh ok, so he has been a sleepy boy? Just wondered if his toe was healing up nicely. Let us know

What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
