Weird shedding colour

Postby mingapinguino » Fri Apr 23, 2021 7:21 am

Is it normal for beardies to change colours that much during a shed? The orange patch is the new skin. Mouth and beard too turned orange-ish. Is that because of the veggies full of beta carotene?[Click image to enlarge]

Beta carotene doesn't affect color. Your dragon is just a high orange color, it will show more and more as they grow.
Have you had him from a baby? Curious to see how he has changed.

Our boy is a bright orange too. When he is getting ready to shed, he turns almost white! You can tell when the shed is about to come off when he starts looking more orange again, but dull. After the area sheds it is back to the bright orange again.
