Surprise at the vet today


Hatchling Member
So, I've had my Beardie for almost 2 years, under the assumption it was a girl and basically verified the first time I took her to the vet in late 2019.
Well, brought her to the vet today because she hasnt been eating lately (luckily got a good fecal sample that they sent off for testing), and this new vet was obviously more skilled with reptiles than the first because she confirmed 100% that my Cersei is actually a boy!
It's kinda funny because I've always been on the fence about my beardie's gender. I could never confirm the bulge(s) under the tail myself and dont own a flashlight powerful enough for me to see through the tail. The femoral pores are obvious, but the head is smaller than other male dragons I've seen, and he bobs every now and then but hardly ever black beards. So I was unsure but now we've got a definitive answer.

So here's a new introduction thread for HIM. No longer Cersei, but Cicero, and here's some cute pictures I've taken recently.

KarrieRee Sicko
Beardie name(s)

Meh, it never bothered me that much. It was more of a curiosity but I was content with him being my little girl. Now instead of "girl" I'm working on calling him "buddy" and "Cic" where I would've originally called him "Cers". It's taking some getting used to but all I really care about is that he's healthy. Which he is, according to the vet.

This is Atlas, he's my 3 year male leatherback. i don't know whether to be worried as he has no femoral pores what so ever, not even small ones! i always thought they would come with age but he is getting a bit older now and i'm starting to worry. here are some photos of his lack of pores. if someone could let me know if this is healthy that would be greatly appreciated!!
I don't own Swordtail anymore. He owns me
Swordtail is being the chonky turd he is
Hmmm.... May make a dress for her lol
