If my bearded dragon is yellow, is it sick?


Answer by  SashaDarkCloud (5764)

Some bearded dragons are yellow by nature. Plus they are supposed to have bright colors. Though if you are concerned you can take your dragon to the vet.

It is possible that a bearded dragon that turns yellow has been infected with a so called "yellow fungus" infection that can be treated with a combination of Novosol and Lamisil to resolve it. But this species also comes in a variety of colors so if the color is not new it may just be a yellow colored one.

There is a fungus that bearded dragons can get and that is yellow fungus. The treatment for this fungus is extensive and many times the reptile dies before treatment can be completed.

No, its not sick. Yellow is almost the natural color of bearded dragon. Try to feed it regularly and keep it at correct temperature.

Depending on the type of bearded dragon yes and no. If you got the dragon and its scales were already yellow than it most likely is not sick, but if it was a sudden change in color then it should be taken to a vet soon.
