Tail shedding problem

Postby kolt91 » Thu Jun 02, 2011 8:45 am


So I've noticed the end of my bearded dragon's tail turning black over the last month and was just thinking it was getting ready to shed. Well the rest of the tail finally turned grey and shed today but the lower part is still black. Now i've heard about tail rot but I don't really think that's what it is right now I think the skin just won't shed but i'm not sure.

Here is a picture from yesterday:

And here is a picture from today:

Should I be worried? Is there something I should do to help it shed?

ive had that happen before although it wasnt as black. it might just be a little behind. id give it some time and bathe that area frequently.
