Tail Rot?

Postby Kameeson » Wed Jul 03, 2019 5:44 am

Can someone help me identify what wrong with my beardie. His whole tail has gone very dull in colour and the tip is particularly dark. However the dullness cuts off just before his body. He hisses if I try to touch his tail, very concerned.
For a while he wasn't eating any veg and he harley poos now. He also hasn't shed in a while, however he's still fine with being picked up and taking baths. Dose anyone know what's with him?

(I will upload photos later)

My guess is that the tail is getting ready to shed. Photos would be helpful though. I'll be glad to take a look when you have a chance to post them. You can upload them here https://www.beardeddragon.org/useruploads/ and then post them to your thread using the XIMG button when you reply.

As Cooper said, sounds like shed. Is it like this :

Hello here are the photos, if it is just shed, I've never seen him shed like this before. [Click image to enlarge]

Yes that's 100 % normal. He's a big hefty boy, you may want to limit his diet . We love them but we can tend to easily overfeed a dragon that loves to eat. :)

Ok thank you, I'm so relieved, and yes he dose love his food, I'll try to cut down on it a bit. Thanks so much for your help.
