A lot of times, that bump is an indicator of MBD.
Can you post a picture?

What are his temps, and how do you measure them?
What do you use for a UVB source? Type, such as tube, coil, MVB? How old is it?
Do you supplement your food with calcium and vitamins?

Please do answer those questions. It sounds as if he is having metabolic bone issues due to lack of UVB exposure & inappropriate calcium absorption. Can you post a picture of the bump on the base of the tail, please?

My 2 year old male dragon has been shedding for 2-3 weeks. I’m worried about it being a stuck shed. I’ve seen on other websites they should not soak and then I’ve seen that they should be soaked. So my question is when should I soak him?
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
