I was going to say the same, it looks like mold. I had carpet when my guy was a baby too. Such a pain to try and keep it clean, and I always worried about mildew as a possibility since putting it in the dryer can break down the fibers. There are plenty of better options out there. Textured nonadhesive shelf liner like you get from Home Depot is a favorite on here, as well as slate tiles with some texture, but not so much that it feels sharp if you run your hand over it. Both can be spot cleaned with a 50/50 mix of water and vinegar. You can put some thick disposable shop towels underneath the tiles to catch any liquid excretion and change them out as they get soiled.

Don't I know it! I am so lucky to have found this place. I was doing a lot of things wrong because I just asked the guy at the pet store and went off of that. Luckily found this site before he was even a year old, and he is so much happier since the changes! I'm really glad I found this forum before even thinking about Reddit. I go over there now and am appalled at how horrible and toxic people are to new beardie parents trying to learn and get better. Much more supportive and understanding over here.

Yess! 💯 I mean I haven’t checked out Reddit but sounds like that’s a good thing lol ! I happened to find this site of a random google search for my beardi and everyone has been nothing but informative and friendly ! Could not ask for a better little online community :)

Buffy snuggling with my partner!!!
So freaking handsome I just love youuuuu so much 💕
There is something wrong with my beardies left eye!! I included a picture where it shows what her right eye looks like then the others are what her left eye is. She always has it closed (as much as she can) and she finally opened it for a bit when i misted her. I don’t know what i could be doing wrong and it’s not from sand because she doesn’t have it in her cage.
