- Beardie name(s)
I just got a rescue bearded dragon, I have an enclosure ready for them but I'm currently quarantining them. The guy who I bought them from wouldn't give me much information, not even its sex or age (I think it's a girl though). I'm mainly worried about three things, it's missing all its scales around both its eyes; which I might be wrong but I think means it has some type of vitamin deficiency. It's missing scales under their belly, and not just a few, near their back legs there is at least an entire half an inch of missing scales, I'm not sure if it is their marking but also some of the scales are a bit darker than the rest. And they have metabolic bones diseases, which was the only problem I knew of; but at the one point where their spine has a kink in it, there is a patch of exposed skin that almost looks like a healing burn. I just want to know what the best course of action may be, and perhaps get a tad bit of advice seeing as this is my first bearded dragon. By the way, they are an older bearded dragon.
