Can someone help me figure out if my bearded dragon is gravid. He dug 3 times so far. Once was last night in his hut. The other 2 times was after I gave him something to eat or he ate himself. He has purée on his mouth and appears to be scrapping it off. He has been trying to scrape it off after he eats a lot. However, the last 2 times he clawed at the floor a little too. The last time he went to the entrance of his hut and did it. I tried to feel his tummy. It felt squishy to me, but I do t really know how to feel it. He went to the vet on Friday and the vet felt his tummy he felt nothing. He was not eating as good yesterday, but that seemed to improve. I don’t think he has been eating ravenously. He has only been glass surfing right before he poops. Can someone help?

How pld is your dragon, 2 to 3 years old is when most start producing eggs.
I'll post a picture of how to sex your dragon. Be very careful not to burn him/her with the light.

He is 4-5 years old. I don’t think I will be able to sex him because he dosent like being held. He also a little annoyed with me today because I was trying to get the purée off his face. Is there another way to know if he’s gravid?

I think I’ve noticed more of the female parts one I try to look though. I’ve just never looked with a flash light and his tail up. Also, I know the vet leaned towards female but was unsure.

If female and 4 or 5 she coukd be. Make a dig box with play sand and chemical free and manure free top soil. 50/50 mix, and offer it to her.

Males + females will both dig but of course only females produce eggs. A dig box is good as mentioned. If you could arch the tail up and snap a few quick pics to post here someone can sex Cole for you.

If he dosent want it does that mean he isn’t gravid? Also the vet felt his tummy Friday and didn’t feel anything. So, is it still possible he’s gravid

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
