Hello,

You can't tell the gender of a beardie that way. Could you please post a picture of his/her tail arched up at about 90 degrees with his belly flat on the ground? Like this: View media item 61100 or this: View media item 60481

8) Thank you so much! Ok, I am trying this again :) The flashlight thing I might try next. His/Her belly is awfully big and squishy- I never thought I would become so attached to a reptile- they are indeed so sweet and intriguing! This is my daughter's! I might have to get one for myself. I'm just grandma :lol:

Lol, Rocco's a girl! :) So You may have to change her name if you want. But I know how you feel though. :) I thought that my first beardie Cisco (named after a character in the flash), was a male so I named her after a guy character in the flash.. I later took her to repticon for the first time and everyone said that he was a she. :lol: Lol, and the name has stuck ever since. :lol:

and I agree. It is very easy to get attached to a beardie. Lol, me and my family went from being a no animal family (except for the occasional fish) to Four bearded dragons, One crested gecko, and a cat in a year. All because of one lizard (and my love for herps that I've had since I was three). So don't be surprised if you're soon going to be asked for just one more pet. :wink:

Also for the flashlight sexing, Make sure to use a very bright flashlight in a very dark windowless room with the lights off for the best results.

You’ve been a HUGE HELP!! Thank you! Also very encouraging and quick to respond - so appreciated :) So Rocco is a Rockette? LOL She has waved a few times which is super cute! I don’t need to do the flashlight thing thinking since you can see clearly she is a she lol My concern and main reason of wanting to know is because her belly seems extremely squishy, full, and she digs a lot on the lanolium. She is 4-5 months old. Yikes- are we expecting? LOL!

Lol, Rockette sounds like a good name. :)

I doubt she has infertile eggs. She's way too young. I think that she is just super hyperactive like my Daisy is. View media item 61022 Some dragons just are very active and others may be more lazy/laid back. For example Cisco is very laid back and prefers to take a nap then run around for most of the time (unless she's exploring to find a good place to nap :lol:).

Thor is pretty active but still likes to settle down a bit and snuggle (unless he's around a female :roll:).

Daisy is always active and Hyper and loves to go exploring. and Occasionally she will settle down and snuggle a bit (or for a photo shoot).

and Loki's pretty laid back and likes to either bask or find a nice place to take a nap (or head bob at something).

So all beardies are different. It's just part of their charm. :mrgreen:

and It's normal for beardies bellies to be squishy or soft. It's just how they were made.

Okay lol so as I was told my baby was a boy when I rescued him hehe well I took him to my vet and was advised he is a she ! I was thinking of renaming her to Virgo from Toothless any suggestions for names 😊🥰
I am new and looking for a teen beardie. I have been doing a lot of research for about 2 years.
I'm new here but not new to dragons or snakes. Over the 7 years. I opened my heart and home to neglected. unwanted dras and snakes, some critical conditions. Then nursing them back to health and their final family home. I regularly help my reptiles vet with emergency appointments and I also provide the care in my little quenteen,
