Hi I’ve had my bearded dragon for about 5 months, he’s 6 months old and today I noticed he started scratching the bottom of his tank, i have a long green matt that covers the glass bottom of the tank and he just scratches it up until he’s underneath the mat and just remains there. I was wondering if i’d have to buy substrate since I know there are bearded dragons who like to dig. Please someone reply I’d love to get multiple responses if possible

You can cut up some fleece long pieces and place in his hide- see if that helps- your sure he's male correct? You can also set up a dig box in his tank as well w/ some play sand mixed w/ some potting soil that has no chemicals or fertilizer in it-

So freaking handsome I just love youuuuu so much 💕
There is something wrong with my beardies left eye!! I included a picture where it shows what her right eye looks like then the others are what her left eye is. She always has it closed (as much as she can) and she finally opened it for a bit when i misted her. I don’t know what i could be doing wrong and it’s not from sand because she doesn’t have it in her cage.
