This healthy female bearded dragon is in need of a new home. She hatched in the summer of 2008 and is missing 2 toes from a bite from a sibling as a baby. She is a great eater, gets along with other females (although she should be fed separately to ensure every beardie gets enough to eat), and is easy to handle. She has been around children and would make a great pet for a someone knowledgeable about bearded dragons. She is located in Massachusetts. Please contact me if you’re interested. Thank you.

HYPO (Hypomelanistic or hypomelanism)
Hypo bearded dragons are the offspring of two hypomelanism parents. “Hypo” means less, and melanism refers to the pigment in skin. Hypo bearded dragons have reduced melanin resulting in less brown/black coloring with 100% clear nails and a lighter appearance.
Hypo Red Tiger Female
HET HYPO (Heterozygous for Hypo)
Het Hypos carry the hypo gene but do not show it. They have dark nails and darker pigment similar to normal bearded dragons; however, tend to show color better and are lighter when compared to a normal bearded dragon. Breeding a het hypo with a 100% hypo should produce in approximately 50% hypos and 50% het hypos. I’m hoping to mate the above hypo female with the below het hypo male in late 2016 and am looking forward to the results!
Het Hypo “Rainbow Tiger” (Red Hypo x Citrus tiger) Male
Bearded dragons may turn grey or white before they shed. They enjoy warm baths at this time. Baths helps them stay hydrated and keeps their skin moist, soft, and easier to shed. There are also sprays that may help them shed like Reptile Vita-Spray and Shed Ease.
