QnA on Bearded dragon shaking

Bearded dragons are a popular pet because of their striking appearance and playful personality. But beards can also be a sign of health problems. Bearded dragon signs of calcium deficiency and vitamin D deficiency are often confused, but both deficiencies need to be corrected for the dragon's long-term health.

Calcium is essential for the growth and development of the animals' bones and teeth. A lack of calcium can lead to cramps, paralysis, heart disease, kidney stones and other problems. Vitamin D is important for healthy skin, bones and muscles. Missed doses of this vitamin can lead to Rickets (a condition caused by a lack of sunlight exposure that weakens bone tissue) or Cancer (an illness caused by abnormal cells).


    Another indicator of calcium or vitamin D inadequacy is a bearded dragon shaking or moving in unnatural, jerky patterns. Metabolic bone disease may develop if your pet doesn't obtain enough of these nutrients.

    What signs should I look for to see if my bearded dragon is in distress?

    • Appetite Deficiency.
    • Not Getting Enough Sun.
    • Clawing The Terrarium's Sides frantically.
    • Lower levels of activity.
    • Darkening of the color.
    • Aggressive Personality.

    What does it indicate when a bearded dragon shakes its head and opens its mouth?

    When a bearded dragon opens its jaws, it is known as gaping. Your beardie is excessively hot, which is the most frequent cause of gaping. Beardies do not sweat as much as humans do!

    What might cause a bearded dragon to get stressed?

    Loud noise, such as outside traffic, dogs, screaming, TV, music, or a wailing infant, are examples of environmental hazards outside the tank. The vibrations and rumbling caused by loud sounds might irritate your dragon nearly as much as the noise itself. Getting a new pet (even a new dragon or reptile in another tank can upset your dragon).

    Why does a bearded dragon tremble?

    Another indicator of calcium or vitamin D inadequacy is a bearded dragon shaking or moving in unnatural, jerky patterns. Metabolic bone disease may develop if you don't obtain enough of these nutrients.

    What's the deal with my bearded dragon wriggling?

    Young bearded dragons are very ecstatic and ready to display their delight in eating. When the vivacious lizards see their prey, they prepare to attack by wriggling and extending their necks.

    What are the symptoms of a respiratory illness in a bearded dragon?

    Bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites may all cause respiratory tract infections. Sneezing, drainage from the eyes or nose, bubbles from the mouth or nose, excessively quick or shallow breathing, open-mouthed breathing, reduced appetite, and fatigue are all symptoms of the disease.
