Hey guys! I've just adopted a 5 year old female bearded dragon! Her name is tangelo :) I've never had a bearded dragon before so I'm not sure if her beard is normal or too large would anyone be able to tell me if it looks normal or if I should book a visit to the vet? Thanks so much!

Looks normal to me it just looks like she’s going to start shedding on her beard. They shed in patches like that. Sometimes it’s one leg or the tail or half the body or a foot lol 😆. But if you just adopted her you may want to take her to a vet to have a fecal test done just to be safe and make sure she doesn’t have any parasites. Thank you for adopting her that’s awesome.

If she’s eating and pooping and seems alert and active she’s probably ok I just always like to make sure once or twice a year I do a fecal exam to check their parasite load? Keeps them healthy and once you do the initial exam with the vet you can normally just do a fecal once a year and it won’t cost as much as the initial visit. You know I’ve noticed females have a full body and beard then it tapers off very quickly and their chin is thinner and males are just thicker and fuller?

Yes hers does taper off quicky, she is eating an pooping really well considering I just got her! I thought she'd hide for a few days but she's out and about already! Yes I will be taking her to the vet asap, thank you for your reply :)

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?
