Looks like hes in distress ------ causes can be husbandry issues ---- what kind of lighting do you have in the tank and when was bulb changed out last? have you changed anything in the tank ? has he gotten into something out of the tank ? Any pets bothering him? Is he housed w/ another dragon?

His tank we just switched his bulbs last month. He has a uvb bulb and basking bulb, his basking spot is 105 and the cool side is like 80. He is are only pet and nothing has switched in his tank. He is shedding could that be it?

Do you have any more pictures? One from the top and maybe one from the side?
Anything changed outside of his tank? Moved any furniture? Other objects that aren't usually there?
Is he active? Anything else noticeable other than his black beard?
Is he eating and pooping normally?
Sorry-So many questions!

How is he behaving? Dark beard paired with lethargy means very different things than dark beard paired with running around and head-bobbing. If he is lethargic and his beard is black, he doesn't feel well. If he is very active and his beard is black, he may be fine, just feeling aggressive/riled up/wanting to mate with someone.

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!
