Hello,

That is excellent he is doing so much better! I'm sure that his mouth feels a lot better now. Maybe the lump on top of his head
will eventually go away as well. Feel free to update whenever you would like, as well as pictures, too.

Hiccup he is 4 and Blaze is 3
Can anyone tell me if this article about Beardies closing there eyes when being stroked is true? A quick summary is that they close their eyes because they don’t like it.

I do not believe that is true- I was told it is a sign of trust -- Hiccup does it all the time when I stroke his head and he does not run away as I stroke his head when hes in the tank or out on the back of the chair or when sitting on me and does not move or turn black etc -- I think that article is wrong

I agree. I did end up reading another article that said it is true in some ways but that when there is a bond and trust that closing of their eyes is a good thing. There really is so much info out there that contradicts it self or that is down right wrong.

Hello,

I tend to agree that many times them closing their eyes is them relaxing. I have never had one of our dragons act as if they were in
fear anytime I petted their heads.

Can beardies eat Mustard Greens? Hope so I bought some along with some Cilantro. Needed to try something different. He won't eat his broccoli or cauliflower he used it eat it. So I thought I'd give it a try.

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
