Hi everyone recently I was bathing my dragon and I noticed this damaged like scales with a brownish yellow discoloration that doesn't come up when I use a soft bristle toothbrush. Should I be concerned? Is it yellow fungus or scale rot? And if so what to do next to heal him?[Click image to enlarge]

Hi there,

Definitely not YF and not scale rot.

Lots of dragons get discolored scales like that, especially on their bellies. They probably do everywhere else too, it's just most noticeable on the belly.

Either way, nothing to worry about :)

I agree this is harmless, I've seen the same + even more on many dragons including my own. :)
