Looks real to me, Its just a baby and most babies have awesome color :) Leatherback for sure.. Silkies are ugly and that is NOT ugly :)

As a n00b, I have no idea what I'm looking at, but it's pretty.

I looked at the silky morph at At first I liked it, but then I found myself less and less attracted to it. One of the appealing aspects of a bearded dragon is the scale variation. Leatherbacks are very pretty, but the silky almost looks like an amphibian in some respects. I like amphibians, but if I want one I'll buy one.

I agree with you on that. I see pictures of Silkbacks, Leatherbacks and normal spiky. My fav? The spiky! :D I may be biased because that is the type my Nim is. :p Silkies aren't bearded dragons (LOL), they are just weird and unattractive to me. But that is my personal opinion. I won't judge people who own silkies. I just don't want one.

yeah some people love silkies.. They just arnt for me ahah. I like my reptiles to have scales. Really like leatherbacks though, I have a normal though. Silkies just remind me of naked mole rats and bleh, so creapy haha

Exactly yes. :lol: I don't like naked animals. Cats, dogs, rats, lizards, good thing there are no naked birds. Silly little chicken thing they would be. :D I've seen baby birds.
I know there was a guy on Fauna who posted he was working with on a project to produce something like that, I wonder if it worked and that is one of them.. I will check in and see..

On further inspection these little babies don't look the same, but are very dark and have a leopard printed belly. They have some stress marks, but all babies do in the pretty store. I held the one show and was a happy, alert little guy. They had an older one in there, he is the other beardie in the picture. I looked closely at his belly, he does have marks, but for sure had the leopard print.

Those poor things are super stressed, that's why the black is on their bellies like that :(


yes, i agree they are stressed. That is why the patterns on the "belly" is so noticeable. And the hind legs had patterns offer than verticals. And of course you want to :) buy every animal from the pet store. They are probably not the kind that one shown in the first post.

Ps, I love this website, it had so helped my with being and beardie owner (slave) !

This is Atlas, he's my 3 year male leatherback. i don't know whether to be worried as he has no femoral pores what so ever, not even small ones! i always thought they would come with age but he is getting a bit older now and i'm starting to worry. here are some photos of his lack of pores. if someone could let me know if this is healthy that would be greatly appreciated!!
I don't own Swordtail anymore. He owns me
Swordtail is being the chonky turd he is
