hi all, i recently noticed chompys nails are very short. i admit i probably don’t cut them often enough, but when i do i definitely do not cut them this short. however- chompy is a VERY active beardie and spends the majority of his time running around, climbing, and exploring. when he wants to come out of his tank he runs around his tank- his decorations are wood and a plastic rock. could he be filing his nails down just by being so active? is it okay? should i be concerned?

Look out for signs of damage such as bleeding or fingers at odd angles etc, but having them short like that from wear doesn't necessarily pose a problem. It can make climbing/gripping things more difficult for them though. My dragon has very short/filed nails like that - they haven't grown out in the 6 years I've had him. Doesn't seem to bother him, but he isn't a great climber because of it.
