I just noticed his shoulder/pad is swollen and the other is not. Now, I feel guilty because I didn't see it before.

I have silkworms and hornworms coming in.
A black cherry powder supplement, calcium, vitamin liquids coming. Powders galore from bearded dragon. co.
I gave him some silkworm enzyme.
I will be alerting his vet tomorrow.

Me too.
Slowly but surely, I'm returning the tank to the way it was before the roundworms and his hurt leg. He's showing that he wants to 'climb' so I'm going to give him some stuff. He really appreciates the decor in the corner with a fake plant. I hope he'll like what I'm doing for him. I'll be getting some suction cups or command strips to hang up his hammock.
I want him to have the tank the way it was before he got sick. I tried to get more boxes from the shoe store and they won't let me have one or two for his basking spot - for his UVB.

So, he doesn't want his orange towel on his box or his saucer chair! He's ok with hammock. I also have left his pile of greens on a dish in case he gets brave. Oh, and he's holding his vent with his back legs. LOL.

They can be picky about what they like. I just bought my big male a small dog bed. I have cat beds for all my smaller beardies and they love them. But NOOOO not Zen the first morning he took a huge poop right in the middle, i washed and sanitized it, the second night he climbed out and onto his hammock. So much for that idea lol .... the lil ingrate 🙄

So, he didn't like his orange towel on his 'basking spot box'. So I took it out. He was happy with his yellow reversible blanket with a batman symbol on the front. He sat all day on his box watching a show about Gator Hunting. Gator Hunters or something. One of them sounds like my uncle.

lol. They really love their shows and movies. He loves to watch the manly shows on Defy.
And my beardie likes to watch YouTube with me.
I found a channel that he likes so much that he just stucks for a very long time.
If I remember correctly, this is Awesome Restorations, they restore various old things there, the picture is very bright, and the sound effects is made as if a real sound engineer worked on it. There are sounds of opening bottles, creaking, knocking, sounds of nature.
Foxy just stucks on it 😆

Mine loves to watch youtube videos also. Music included. He's a classical music lover too.

Lounging around on his hammock.
Yes, that is a 'mole' on his back. It's not spreading or changing shape or form. I feel it every day and look at it every day to see if it changes. It's ok.
I would love to make his hammock 'higher' But, he's very low to the ground, a pillow 'hammock' underneath.

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
