Hi! It’s been a long time since i’ve been here, but recently and my baby as getting older and growing, i noticed these black like speckles that are beginning to appear and i’m really scared about it.

Even though he looks unhappy in the pictures, the spots do not change based on mood. He doesn’t flinch when their touched. and he’s eating and pooping and acting normally. (However a few of the beard scales do look slightly mistaken so that may have been early she’d. But he’s also been Glass surfing all the time recently and even though he’s out constantly he still wants out more!

do they keep on appearing or are they just getting larger :?: as he grows bc my baby has a few on his chin and the vet checked it out and it turns out that it just markings :!: so what I think it is since you said it changes color most likely its markings and also it could be from stress has anything different /change of diet or anything else happen to be able to stress him out which could be another reason for the glass surfing :) i could be wrong but you should wait till Tracie comes on here :blob8: but I highly recommend taking him to the vet if they keep appearing :) but do they look like bugs bc it could also be mites? just wait till Tracie comes on here she will give u a better idea! :)

They do actually, he’s been getting more recently, however they ones that he has are not getting any bigger, he’s just getting more of them?? And also he’s been in mating season recently so he always wants out so he can mate with our other lizard.

yes very understandable but there is always a possibility! you cant keep them safe all the time sadly but you should always make sure! sadly I take care of my baby and make sure nothing happens to him but sadly I got him with coccidia and we are struggling to remove it we've already tried 2 medications and no improvements :oops: but hopefully he just has stress marks/or maybe just his color just wait for Tracy shell know more than me!

They don't look like mites to me. They just look like dark pigments of skin which are typically harmless. If you observe them, do they become more visible at times based on the skin shade? (more pronounced when basking and lighter colored skin for example).

They do become more visible yes, it also seems that the more he sheds, the more he gets.

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.
