As far as i can remember Nematodes put simply are worms and coccidia is a kind of single cell protozoa. Coccidia isn't normally a problem in a healthy lizard and is very common in Beardies, but it can really take hold if your lizard becomes sick for some other reason. So its nothing to worry about at the mo if everything else is ok health wise, but take your Beardie to the vets to get it sorted as instructed : victory:
