This thread is for the folks who don't know how to cut dragon nails perhaps this picture will help you. you can use rodent nail trimmers for 11months and younger and for 1 year and over you can use dog nail trimmers. And pls dont cut your dragons nails if theres none below the white part(aka the nerve)

Thanks Mango, that should help some curious owners. :) They can check youtube videos as well to actually watch as someone cuts their beardie's nails.

I have a dragon that is 3 yrs old and never had his nails cut. His nails are quite long and only about 1/8 inch beyond the white part. Is it possible to do anything now to shorten his nails?

i'd cut them as suggested above and just keep at it. if it is an issue of causing problems walking, a vet could cut back further and then cauterize to stop the bleeding. i wouldn't suggest doing that at home though.

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?
