Yellow Fungus Question about Dante

Sorry about the quality of the picture. I'm really wondering about my little one Dante, he isn't acting sick or anything yet but my wife and I have just started noticing this yellow coloration happening on his beard a little the other day and then where you can obviously see it on his underside (pic from today). Honestly, I'm scared for him bc of what I've heard and seen online about it, we've called vets and will try to go see one tomorrow depending on the answers we are able to get here. What do the experts think about my guy D? Is it a coloration coming from maturing and what not or is it for sure the fungus?! Thanks!

That is one white beardie belly!
The coloring or pigmentation changes are pretty normal really. A lot of them develop various
coloring on their beards. She could also be getting ready to shed in those areas, too.
Is she eating well right now?

I agree that's just a new tint of natural color coming in. Many dragons have a variation in beard color and some even have full beard color that extends even to their undersides. ... _large.jpg ... _large.jpg

Based on how they seem to align with the stressmarks, I’d say these are just part of your beardie’s natural coloring. Mari has orange, red, and yellow stripes on her underside and beard, and I thought she had YF at first but was satisfied to learn about the rainbow of colors they can flash underneath.
