Dark spot on beardies head

Postby Ivylouwho » Thu Jun 25, 2020 7:03 am

Hey everyone, I’ve had Drogon for almost a year now and this morning I woke up to feed him and noticed this spot on his head. I checked him over and it’s nowhere else on his body. I’m not sure if it’s yellow fungus, or is he’s dehydrated? If you guys could help me out that would be great! It would hurt my heart to much to lose him. By the way the brown on his lips is prune that I had just fed him! No need to worry about that ha! [Click image to enlarge]

Hi there, that's just a uneven little strip of shed. It's very common with mature dragons to have a patch here or there that makes you think " what is that ! " :) Here's a crazy look on one of my boys :

You don't need to do a thing for it, contrary to what some people might say. If anything, a light mist in the tank 1-2 X a day will help him shed but no need for soaking or scrubbing.
