Severe black bearding outside?


Hatchling Member
Hey guys I have taken my 2 beardies outside the last 4 days in a row and they darken up basking under the sun which is normal. But my Chubbs gets a extremely jet black beard and I never thought of it till now but could being outside consecutively be stressing her out? Amber darkens up as well but not much and they both start to gape after being out 5-10 mins. I thought the typical body temp regulation but 5-10 mins seems fast to reach optimal temps (hoping I'm wrong). They are not used to being outside a lot so I'm doing it more and slowly one of their triggers already is when a airplane passes overhead. I'm looking to get a big kiddy pool so I can fill it with soil and let them roam but be in a controlled area with 24/7 supervision. Hopefully overtime they will learn to enjoy being outside but I want to keep them from being stressed out as much as possible. Obviously i know they will get stressed out at some point but that's never my intention

Note: They currently bask on my lap and/or a lounge chair so with a kiddy pool they can roam and dig

Every dragon is different but for some [ like yours ] everything is new + scary to them. They should get used to it after a while. If you want a screened enclosure you can try one of these, others on the forum have these for their beardies.
