What gender

Found this bearded dragon by my garage. Asked my neighbors if it was theirs and checked the nextdoor app. No one is missing it so I bought a 40 gallon terrarium kit and I am keeping it. Can anyone let me know its gender and how old it might be? It is 15 inches long. I am feeding it mealworms and is actively eating them. Any helpful advice is appreciated. Thank you.

It looks male. But if you can put it flat on a table and gently curl its tail over its head and take a pic. It would be easier to tell. I'll also post a pic of how to candle light to see. Just be careful not to burn it with the light.

I see in one of your pics it looks like you might have your dragon flipped on its back. Just a word of caution, they can't breath when flipped over.

Ok, thank you so much, It was only for the picture to identify its gender. I didn't know. I won't do that again.

Thank you for your response. Is this a better shot?

I wasn't criticizing, most folks don't know, i just try to speak up so folks are aware 🙂. I don't see the bumps from hemipenes so most likely a female 🙂

Please make sure your using the correct uvb No coils they are inadequate - Long tube fixture-- there are 3 recommended on this forum I can post links for them No colored bulbs please you want a solid clear bright white basking no off white or yellowish bulbs or daytime bulbs- also your gonna want to upgrade the tank to a 120 gallon - please feed fresh salads everyday and a good staple feeder like dubia roaches or crickets silk worms - you need 2 digital probe thermometers that keep surface basking temps 95-100- those temps and the uvb are crucial to the dragons overall health and behavior

I did not take that as criticism, it was an informative response. I truly did not know that. Thank you for the information.

Your welcome 🙂. This forum is about the best resource out there for beardies. There is a ton of helpful folk here that can and will answer most any questions you may have. Don't be bashful about asking, it's always better to ask than to guess. Care for beardies isn't really hard but it is extremely specific. Karrieree can help you with the lighting if you need, once that is on par everything else kindda falls in place.

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!
