Three-legged beardie

Hello all! i am new here and thought i’d share my little beardies leg story. I have a 13 month old dragon named boogie :) I first got him december 2020.

I talked about amputation with the vet and we decided to give it a go( with a very high chance of him passing away) In March 2021 he received the successful amputation and as is, he is a very healthy dragon today!! here he is-

Great to see him doing so well and hats off to you for not giving up on him!

Have to ask though are those pictures all of the same dragon because the last picture shows a dragon with the opposite rear leg amputated.

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
