Father on the right and son on the left, Megatron and Melvin. The look nearly identical except Megatron is still slightly larger and has a bit more red coloring. Supervised bath time is the only time these two males get near each other. They normally can’t even be kept in the same room. When they were in the same room, they would run up against or charge the glass trying to attack each other (causing a scar and scab on their chin), try to hide sometimes, and they were stressed they even ate less. Two males should never be kept together in the same enclosure and even keeping two males in the same room where they can see each other can stress them out. Males who are fighting show similar behavior to mating; the dominant male tries to get on-top of the other male and push him to the ground. They may also wiggle and/or wack their tails, bite each other, hiss, and turn their beard and bellies black.
A male’s beard may turn black in the presence of another bearded dragon.
Father on left and Son on right:
Beardies enjoy a bath from time to time. They tend to show their best color when in warm water. Megatron especially appreciates baths when he is shedding.
Firestar’s tail curls up in the air when she is put into water.
This male’s beard and the flaps above his shoulder turn black as he gets excited to see a female. Males can also turn their bellies black when very excited.
Female bearded dragons can also turn their beards black when excited, upset, startled, or frightened.
Megatron has a black beard and does head bobs in the water when he takes a bath with Firestar.
This female puffs up, turns her beard black, and does slow push-ups when she see this male.
Megatron really hates the duster; Marvin couldn’t care less.
Gorgeous Rainbow Tiger Male Bearded Dragon needs a new homes. He is very friendly and healthy. He’s eating crickets, turnip greens, romaine lettuce, and mustard greens. He has been given minerals and vitamins. He has had a UVB 10.0 light and gets natural sunlight almost every day. His father is a Rainbow Tiger morph (in last picture) and the mother is a Citrus Tiger x Red/Gold morph. The adult in the photo is his father.
