It will probably have been bitten off when it was a baby. It happens a lot when they are kept in large groups. Dealers lists quite often have "stumpy tailed" at a slightly cheaper price.

Does not affect them in any way though.

I agree sounds like its just been chomped off by another dragon as a baby, shouldn't cause any probs at all

If you do breed the babies wont be born with stumped tails. Tail loss is a husbandry problem. Either tail nips or retained shed problem.

Which is why its so important to have the correct set up, lots of veg and tons of live food.
This is where it gets expensive, you not only need a viv for each of your adults but also a viv for the first lot of hatclings, then when they start growing you need to seperate the smaller ones .. by this time your second! batch is hatching so a viv for them ... then of course there is the third batch to hatch just as your starting to sell the bigger ones of the first batch ... but of course you've held a few back because they are small ... so whats that now? 4-5 vivs?

Wouldnt be my cup of tea personally. Would rather rehome one of the hundreds of beardies up and down the country in rescue centres desperate for a home because everyone seems to breed them for the sake of it.
