Shedding question!

Postby Brittneesmile » Thu Feb 21, 2019 4:00 pm

My 2 year old beardie is starting to shed a large area on her tummy. Some of the scales are turning brown though. I’m not sure why. I’m hoping it isn’t scale rot or stuck shed.

After blowing the pic up, it looks more like your dragon needs a bit of cleaning, LOL!!! Doesn't look like anything is wrong to me. It is all on the part that is about to shed. Time will tell.
The wonderful world of bearded dragons is a magical land of mystery, enchantment, cuddles, love and, worry! A mysterious realm where things always seem to change in an instant and, the moment you think you have it all figured out, the rules change! You think you own your dragon, guess again. You are now a slave!!!

Lol I give her a bath every other day and she’s not on sand or any sort of loose substrate so I don’t think that’s it.

Are you talking about the several darker spots near the center? It's kinda hard to tell if they are something or just natural coloring. Has anything changed? I don't think it's anything and should go with the shed but please update if it's gotten worse or you still think it's something.

Nothing has changed. It looks like pre shed. She has it in random spots all over her body. I’m not sure how long the pre shed last for though. I’ve been giving her baths every day and using a soft tooth brush to help, nothing has changed though.
