I am just curious. My daughter's lizard is about 4 months old and has had 2 good sheds. Within 1 week of his last shed, he started getting the preshed look again-arms covered in the whitish coloring,etc. Which means in the next 2-3 weeks he will shed again.
How old is your beardie and how often does he shed (and yes I know every lizard is different)
Mine is doing very well even with the parasites that we have been dealing with. he is now 11 1/4" long was just under 6" onJan 4th 2009

Hi there, my beardie is about 7 months old, he was shedding when we got him about 6 weeks ago and has shed twice since. He got that whitish colour on his nose and legs almost as soon as he finished the previous shed. Seems they do it almost constantly while they are young as they are growing fast :)

Typically the younger they are the more often they shed. To qualify that, it is in relation to how fast they are growing too. All dragons grow at different rates but they they tend to grow fairly rapidly during the first few monthes. It's simply the shed as often as they need to depending on their growth.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
