Hi everyone:
I just notice that my 2 to female grow some yellow color inside her mouth around gums and tip of her tongue, some yellow on her throat (two pieces look like vocal cords), yellow scales by the mouth. I heard some bearded dragon have liver issue develope yellow in the mouth, so I dont know is it her new color grow out or should I worry about her health issue, she does act a little bit lazy and eat less food recently (still eat crickets but less greens).her tank temperature(110F/87F) and uvb are normal, poop color dark green and white .Does anyone have your baby with yellow mouth like that!?thanks a lot..Ruby

Hi there, some dragons just have that color in their mouth naturally and it's no problem. I've seen many like that, nothing to worry about ! :)

Hello,

Yes, they have a lot of variable in genetics. A yellow pigmentation in the mouth is one of the
initial genetic traits which was said to provide a type of self defense mechanism due to the
bright yellow color. Some still have recessive genes for this trait.
I think it looks fine, just based on the pictures.

Hello,

Yes, over time, they definitely can have pigmentation changes. I am glad she is doing well!

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
