Sorry if this is kinda gross but as my bearded dragon was using the bathroom something was sticking out of her butt. It was red but within about 3 minutes it went back in on its own. I tried to look things up but I can’t find anything. I added a picture so you can see. Thanks

Just a part of the rectal anatomy, if this was a male I'd think it was a hemipene. Sometimes this stuff happens when they push out the poo but as long as it went back in right away it's fine. Be sure to keep her well hydrated and feed veggies.

You're welcome ! If anything like that happens and it doesn't go back in [ a prolapse ] you can soak it in sugar water or apply honey to it. The sugar or honey cause it to shrink it so it can slip back in. If that doesn't work you'll have to keep it moist with honey and take her to a vet.

Ok, I’ll definitely keep that in mind if that were to ever happen

Are you sure your Beardie is female because they sure do look like hemipenes :)
Well the breeder I got her from said she was a female but I can’t really tell. So it looks like she’s a male? I haven’t had to bring her to the vet so I dont know for sure.

To check the gender, post a couple more pics with the tail arched higher in the air.

Sorry if I missed it, but how old is the beardie? From what I see in your pic, I'd guess female.

Ok. Pretty sure that's female. Your picture shows the interior structure fairly well, so I think we can make reasonable conclusions from it.

Anyone disagree?

Then nursing them back to health and their final family home. I regularly help my reptiles vet with emergency appointments and I also provide the care in my little quenteen,
