hi does any one have the answer to this question
a neighbour of mine has 3 bearded dragons i noticed one wasnt looking to great it has two in dents behind its eyes on top of its head
instead of being quite spongy as on my own dragons they had no water available plus all sand stuck to its eyes i put them in the bath and ive never seen dragons drink so much do you think the dents could be dehydration
plus i think she could be pregnant as she shares with a male and another female

Where do we start!

Firstly it sounds very much like dehydration - what is their diet? Next they are not a companion type creature and should NOT be kept in groups unless in a viv at least 6' with more than one basking spot, so she may well be gravid and could also be suffering from being bullied. Basically they should be separated - one per 4' enclosure and sited so that they can't see each other. Hope this helps a bit.

Rick

No worries - they will have to make some sort of arrangement to separate or sell on a couple if they want them to have any sort of a life.
