So from the day i got my beardie he has had no hand on his right side. I have been thinking about making a prosthetic hand for him but i am not sure what to use. I want to know if anyone has done this before and/or can give me ideas on how to go about this. Any recommendations?

I don't think the beardie will like anything glued, bound, strapped to it's arm.

I saw a beardie once who had a two wheel dolly under it's hips , as it had a broken back and lost the use of it's legs.

Very common for beardies and other lizards to loose a foot, hand, arm or leg in attacks by their siblings or tankmates .... they adapt quite well and often lead pretty normal pet lives , but do require mods to their tanks to compensate for their disability / mobility issues.

Ok thank you for the info. Yeah he probably doesnt need it. He is just as agile and athletic as any other beardie.

It was awfully thoughtful of you to consider the option though. We will often go to great lengths to make our buddies happy.

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
is tape safe for fixing something in my leopard geckos hide?
Day 3 of brumation. It's a struggle. I really miss my little guy. 😔
Mirage entered brumation yesterday, I'm gonna miss hanging out with my little guy.
