Weird Shed?

Postby Lyssamichelle96 » Sat Sep 26, 2020 8:33 am

Bean is about 18 months old and usually very calm. A few days ago he started glass surfing alot and this patch on his head showed up. He usually sheds in this pattern on his head but it's never been red before. I'm concerned with the color, could it be an infection of some kind? It started coming off this morning and it looks alittle pink underneath. He is still eating and everything like normal. The only change in behavior is the glass surfing.

His setup is a 40 gallon breeder with a 105 degree baking spot and reptisun t8 mounted inside the tank. He eats mustard greens and collard greens mostly with Dubia roaches a few times a week.

That's 100 % fine, no problem at all. Very common for dragons to have uneven sheds. :) A patch here, a patch there, that's the norm. The older they get the longer it can take but don't worry about it.
