So I am giving my bearded dragon a bath and I notice on one of his front left claws that the claw closest to his neck looks crooked. I don't know if it is normal because all his other claws are fine. Is this bad? What should I do?

Does he use it - it doesnt look that bad--- and are you using a hammock in the tank? That could be a problem if its a green mesh or the grass ones

He doesn't seem to mind it or notice it. He does have a hammock in his enclosure, however, it is not green mesh. The hammock looks like this: Thanks for replying

It does look a bit out of alignment. It's possible that it was caught on something and got twisted up. It's not likely to pose a problem unless it becomes infected. Keep an eye out for signs of pain when putting pressure on it or reluctance to use that hand. Swelling or bleeding could also indicate a problem that warrants a closer look, but otherwise I'd just let it be. It might be a good idea to swap out the hammock or cover it with some fleece that won't be as likely to snare nails if it continues to be a problem.

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
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.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
