I suggest watching him/her for a couple of days to see if he/she has any personality traits that jump out at you... try to pick somthing unisex that way you don't have to worry about a boy with a girls name or vice versa later. I've seem some really cool names for beardies on this site... you may come across something you like that way, or you may find something you like as a jumping off point... I was just watching Dex hunt for crickets around his viv and though Hunter might be a good unisex name for a beardie. Good luck and keep us posted!
Dex does that once in awhile... sometimes I'm not sure if he's angry and trying to puff his beard (doesn' look like your baby is doing that) sometimes, they gape when they are too hot. Maybe your bath was too warm? Does anyone else have any ideas? Let us know if it happens again, we can see if their are any similarities in the circumstances and try to figure it out.
Is mine too little to figure out if its going to be lighter or darker? I LOVE the light colored bearded dragons and I love the pastel colors. I picked the lighest beardie I could find but does anyone know if i can tell if it is a normal or not?
Beardies open their mouths like that to thermoregulate their body temps. They'll do this when they're a bit over heated, from warm water in a bath or from being in their basking area for awhile. This works the same was as dogs panting, it helps cool them off. Your baby is a real cutie and so healthy. Have fun. There are so many resources on this site to help you with anything you need. And we really like LOTS of pics, 'cause beardies are all so cute.
I see my lizard is being given Allopurinol 100ml tablet 10mg/ml (0.4) and tramadol 0.2ml every other day to help with gout. I have tramadol at home can I water it down and give it to her and if so do anyone know how much to water down ?
