Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 35+ and have worked with Reptiles for over 45+ years.

What you have seen s a normal reaction to sunlight. The sunlight and UVB rays help bring out the coloring the dragon. Warmth and UVB in short spans are excellent for the dragon. to help metabolize into D3 to prevent Metaboklic Bone Disease.

15-20 minutes in direct sunlight will bring the colors out in a dragon and that is what you had seen with the orange around the eyes. Most likely somewhere in the breeding is a sunburst or orange color in the blood lines.

Do not worry the Dragon is fine.

Please hit reply to discuss this information. If I have addressed your concerns, please take a moment to rate my service.

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.
