i just been to c some beardies at a pet shop and looked at a baby dragon, it only had like, half a tail, when i asked, the woman said it hatched like that, is it a sign its been fighting with the rest of its siblings in the viv, or is it just, normal?

In petshops tail and toe nips can be quite common. They can nip each other or it can be a bad shed. They can be born with defects also.
However it doesn't effect them. I have a dragon I bough that was housed with a monster sibling. She is missing a foot and part of her tail but she is absolutely fine and runs quicker than most!

I have "special" beardies
Legs missing, tails gone etc
Usually it happens when groups of young are kept together. Doesnt affect them too much though. I would only be concerned if the beardie was lethargic and things.
