Yellow fungus or shed?

Hi! I adopted my 3 year old dragon 2 months ago (a friend could no longer take care of her) and according an initial wellness check with the vet, she was in perfect health. She had some discolored scales on her belly and tail but nothing that raised serious concerns with the vet. Today I noticed her belly had this yellow tinge to some of her scales. She hasn’t had a full shed while I’ve had her (only a few scales here and there) so I’m unsure if this is a pre-shed occurrence or if it’s something I should be concerned about. Thanks in advance for your help.

Definitely not yellow fungus :)

Just stained/dirty skin or shed.

Hello,

That is most definitely an upcoming shed, but, no yellow fungus at all! :D
