Just spotted a lump on the back of my boy beardies head . It's about the size of a finger nail. Appeared all of a sudden (overnight) and doesn't seem to be any injury or lost scales, is not hard when pressed gently, and doesn't seem to be painful or bothering him in anyway, and he is acting completely normally and eating OK and pooing like clockwork (every day). Yes I know reptiles are very good at hiding the fact they are sick unless they are extremely ill. He does a lot of head banging when he sees our girl beardie when he's in his enclosure and when he's out for a roam on the floor, other than that he is very laid back and rarely runs about, just mossies about with his tail up in air tasting stuff and looking about or just likes to sit on the lounge next to me or my wife and admire his girlfriend from a distance. He's not had a tumble (as far as I know) or a fall (we never let our lizard climb down from the lounge without assistance) and he's not been attacked by his girlfriend or one of the bluetongues (only one lizard is out at any time). His energy levels seem be normal for him (no sign of any being lethargic at all). He's basking heaps after feeds, and is just being a normal adult boy beardie as far as I can tell. Anyone encountered a similar problem with their beardies ? what was it ? I'll be keeping a close eye on him and to see how the lump develops (hopefully it'll reduce in size or at least not get bigger over the next few days) and if he shows any signs of illness he'll be off the local reptile vet. I'm hoping the lump is something that is not an issue and will resolve itself and disappear over time. Haematoma (resulting from a misadventure inside his enclosure) ? Abscess (from being bitten back by a large cricket he was eating the other night - he did rearup suddenly but was fine afterwards) ? I've never encountered a similar problem before.
