Hi! My dragon is 2 yrs old. He has a puffy neck since last night. He ate a really big bowl of greens and his neck has looked puffy since then. Could it be possible he is storaging? He is active and acting normal. Can anyone provide any insight? Thanks!

Could be storing food - keep an eye on it see what it does

OK we will keep an eye on him. Is there a certain number of days they can potentially storage food like that for?

Omigosh he just made a noise like he was spitting up and he spit up a piece of greens. Could it have been stuck. He eats so fast when he eats.

Sounds like it- keep an eye on him- not sure how to slow him down on the eating salads- bugs is easy you can control how many he eats by feeding one at a time-- salads are different

Hello,

They are notorious for holding food & fluids in their beards. Usually it goes down within a day or so most
of the times. Be sure you mince up or chop up the greens in small pieces to make it easier for him to eat
his greens.

What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
