Lime Green Coloration Under Belly

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

Hi everyone, I've had my beardie for a little over 4 months now. I was wondering what this coloration under Sol's belly is... I'm kind of worried it's fungus of some sort. I noticed it a few days ago hoping it was just poop and can wash it off during bath time, but it seems to be sticking on there. I'm not sure if waiting for her to shed would get rid of it though.

I swap her sand out every 2 months, and clean rocks and platforms whenever I notice poop and things of that sort. Is there a way to sanitize terrariums safely for them aside from just soap and water if you guys think that cleanliness is the problem?

She hasn't been acting any different since I noticed it. I'm not sure if that makes a difference

Doesn't look like YF to me. Most likely just from a messy bowel movement that had something yellow in it that dyed the area. Any yellow foods you've been feeding recently?

I give her kale every day, she really seems to like it. But nothing of a yellow color.

Usually YF will not just be the discoloration like that, but also s a type of crustiness to the scales. From your picture it doesn't appear to be like that.

I don't really deal with YF much, so maybe someone who has more experience can chime in, but to me, it just looks like staining.

It's not crusty, it's kind of goes with the texture of the rest of her belly if that makes sense.

Update: Almost all of the green tint is gone now, she shedded and looks back to normal. Thanks for help!!

I would like to kindly advise you to not use any sort of substrate in your terrarium. There is always the fear of impaction from sand, which could be deadly to your little dragon. Also, very rarely feed kale to your beardie. Kale will bind to calcium, not allowing for it to be absorbed into the bones.
