So I brought my bearded dragon out of his tank to feed him and I didn’t notice it at first but there’s a pink to red ish hue on one side of his legs and body in small spots and one under his tail. In a few spots there a scales lifting and some completely lifted. I’m am beyond worried because he’s been glass surfing and trying to climb up the walls of his tank and falling pretty hard but he’s a really tough little dude and has done this before without issues. I don’t know for sure if that’s what it’s from but whatever it is I need to know if I should take him to the vet. Please help us if you can!!!! (It’s hard to see in the pictures but those are the places with red spots and missing or lifting scales)

Hi, is he acting weird in any way?
My boy has some lifted scales from time to time and they just shed off in a couple of days time....

Just the glass surfing in which he will climb his cave and then try to climb up the walls and then fall over. He’s freshly recovered from some health problems he’s had but that has been his stomach and diet so I don’t think that’s the cause. The camera really doesn’t do it justice but those spots are pink.

Perfectly normal scales, pattern + color. Any slight difference in hues is perfectly normal. All the regular long time beardie owners here [ including some that had bred them as well ] will tell you that. No need to worry at all, nothing there. :)

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?
