Is it stuck like that or just when he blinks.?
They blink like that sometimes but they're eyes should go back rapidly.
It’s not stuck like that I just can’t bear to see him do that it feels to me like something is wrong. He stopped after a while. He was blinking his eyelid, it was not stuck but he blinked repeatedly for some time

Get some regular saline solution from Walmart no contact lens stuff and rinse the eye out -- where is the dust coming from?
I had let him roam a bit but my bf house is dusty and I think something got in his eye :( he seems ok today but his eye is different like his eye is a bit more extended at the bottom
Oh my sweet Zero I do hope you’re alright

Hello,

How is the eye looking today, any improvements?
The sterile saline solution should help out. If it looks like there could be infection starting
for some reason you could try some manuka honey or raw unpasteurized honey thinned
out with warm water to make eye drops. It is very effective for clearing out bacteria.
Let us know how he is doing.

he seems alright today. i have still noticed his inner eyelid closing at times i am wondering if it is normal. the eyelid is flush white, sometimes i've seen it with blood vessels.

on another note, anyone know if the wyze cam lights are ok around the beardies? it's so important that i am able to observe him during the day and even at night.

yeah, it's a step by step process with the BF. he is not always accommodating. Zero's enclosure is at his house. i am attempting to make changes as I can do. you mentioned tile and something soft, right? there are carpets/liners in petco.
Zen habitats makes a mat to fit 4x2x2 tanks- it's soft - then you can put 2 pieces of textured ceramic tile in something that is not too coarse or too smooth- this will keep the nails down-

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
