Tail fell off?

Postby tillywally » Wed Oct 07, 2009 7:53 pm

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

Hello,

I just gave my beardie a bath which she was usually calm and kept closing her eyes then crouching down low. I later put her back in her cage and noticed something at the end of her tail. I thought it made be shed but it seemed too solid to be that. I dropped it (of course) and I can't find it again. I was wondering if I need to take her to the vet or what I can do for her. I'm just really worried/freaked out. Here's a picture of her tail now... I was wondering maybe it's tail rot? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

I had to deal with tail rot and it did not look like that at all. I hope your beardie is ok.

Hello,

That is odd, your dragon's tail looks fine to me. It could have been dirt possibly?
