Hi everyone!
New to the forum so please bear with me.
My 6 month old male has developed some discolouration above his left eye.
I first noticed it at the start of July where it looked as if he was just going into shed as it was a little white patch. However it’s gotten darker over the weeks, hasn’t changed in size or shape.
No pain when I touch and it he doesn’t seem bothered. Someone had suggested it was his pigmentation changing but I’m not convinced. Have attached photos at various stages for you to have a look.
He is perfectly healthy in all other aspects, eats well, poops almost daily.
Thanks in advance for any help!

Hello,

Can you post a picture of his tank setup? Do you ever let him out to roam the house or anything like that?

It does look odd.
It's possible it's a bruise, a small burn, or even some weird pigmentation going on. At this point, I don't think it's shed, especially since it's been like that for near a month.

Hi Brandon. Yes have attached a photo of his set up below. The basking lamp looks red in the pic but it’s just a normal 75w bulb. He gets out to play quite a lot he likes to sit up at the window and roams about the livingroom. I did think it was maybe a bruise as he likes to climb on everything and sometimes falls 🤦🏻‍♀️ I agree I didn’t think it was shed anymore either.
Thanks for your help.

Setup looks fine, only concern is if he is able to touch the basking bulb. If he can, it's possible he burned himself.

Either way, I'd keep an eye on it and make sure the spot isn't growing. Does his vision in that eye seem to be effected at all?

I’ve never seen him near enough to touch it to be honest he doesn’t even really hang out much under the basking spot usually on his bridge or hammock.
It’s never got any bigger or changed shape just changed colour. Doesn’t bother when I touch it and his eyesight seems fine too

Thanks!

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
