something fell on my beardie on accident so i hurried and tried to grab him but when i did he didn’t move. his body was limp and his eyes were open(usually he would’ve closed them) he wouldn’t move no matter how many time i touched him or anything like a dead animal would do. so i stood there panicking i was shaking and hyperventilating bc i thought i just saw my lizard die but when i poked him one more time he suddenly picked his head in and is now acting normal. i swore he was dead. someone please tell me what happened maybe he was just scared?

What fell on him, if it was heavy you should take him to the vet

Hello,

They will often freeze if they are scared or something falls on them. What fell on him?
Is his beard black or normal color?

the screen on the top of his tank. i’m not sure how it fell but it did. it’s not very heavy imo and it didn’t fall very hard on him but it’s was loud and sudden so i think that’s why he was so scared

he was perfectly normal after and his beard wasn’t black or anything i just think the sudden movement and loud noise scared him i guess?

Hello,

Oh ok, the screen top. Did the screen hit him or the edge which is the heavier portion, hit him?
This does happen, but it doesn't sound like it injured him luckily. They will act nervous & scared
& freeze like that when something scares them.
I am glad to hear he is ok!

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
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
