My beardie has these unusual white spots on the side of her belly, with brown rings around them they're in a straight line and seem to disappear when I pick her up and put her down again. Then the spots gradually return. The spots are about the size of the bottom of a pencil. What could this be? I'm rather concerned

    The spots are most likely mites. Fill your sink up to about their ches height and let your bearded dragon soak for about 10 minutes. If this does not work get an unused toothbrush and put soap on it and scrub it daily.

    They are signs of stress. My dragon gets them from time to time. As long as everything else looks ok and he/she doesn't look lethargic or anything else then your beardie should be fine. If in doubt best thing to do is go to a vet and get him/her checked over.

    Sexing: Sexing very young Bearded Dragons is somewhat difficult, but determining sex in juveniles over the age of three months is relatively easy. By holding the dragon in the palm of your hand with its tail facing you, carefully fold the tail up over the back and examine the area just above (posterior to) the cloacal opening.
    In males, hemipenal bulges can be seen on each side of the tail. The bulging hemipenes will also be separated by an indentation in the center of the tail between the two hemipenes. The hemipenal bulges are absent in females and the viewer will see only a slightly raised mound in this region.

    Don't feed him or her in the natural tank he or she lives in.

We think our bearded dragon is egg bound, after laying two eggs she has become very lethargic. She is sitting in a warm water bath now. Is there anything else we can do?
Thank you.

I have read a lot about beardies and no one has mentioned the water. There is so much in our tap water. I filter her water my self every day. Buying water, I am still not sure what we are getting. Just a thought to pass along.

    I have read a lot about the beardies and like you have had a tremendous amount of questions. as far as water I have found that a dish full of water works for my dragon. He will actually drink from the dish from time to time. However what works the best for me is either spraying do the hot side of the tank and the dragon. It coats him with the water and then he will lap it up from either the climbing wood or slate thats in the tank or from the falling droplets off of the foliage. I also give him a bath once a week and all of this seems to hydrate him wonderfully.

My beardie is 2 years old and having trouble for the past 6 months catching his food. Even barely moving waxworms seem "unreachable." He stands and cocks his head, but when lunging he is too far away, misses and keeps trying to no avail. What's his problem? Is he lazy, or maybe have poor eyesight?

    Hi, how old is your uv light, it could be that as they need appropriate uv to see correctly. Hope this helps, you should also renew uv lights every 6 months if strip lights and 12 months if compact mercury vapour lamps.
