I understand a lot of people may not have a bearded dragon if any. But I thought I would give it a shot.

My oldest daughter has left home to broaden her horizon. So we were left in our care her bearded dragon. We have one of our own, so are not new to this. But, her dragon is a little weird. Beside the fact her dragon chases its tail like a dog and seems to think it is not a lizard, she appears to have lacked certain care, even though my husband and I were on her to make sure she was caring for the lizard, and she assured us she was. It appears that the lizard was thirsting for water. They do not actually drink water like other animals but require regular baths to soak up water in their bodies.

Anyway, without going into detail, I have noticed that her "finger nails" are clear/white. Where as our dragon has black nails. I know that it can be based on the breed, but I have search to the best of my ability she does not fit the breed of clear nails. Also with further proding we found out she did not bath it very often 2 times a week, but sprayed it. Which should be done on the days it does not have a bath, (every other day) So bottom line question is, are her nails clear/white do to lack of water or is it her breed?

Try checkout out beardeddragon.org. it's a whole message board devoted to the species. If you ask the question there someone might be able to tell you if something is up or if it's genetics(several color crossing produce some interesting things, one feature happens to be clear nails).
