yellow fungus?

This is our newly adopted beardie, Calvin. He came to us today from another home where he lived for three months. Before that he was with another family for about 3 years, and a pet store for about 2 years before that. I noticed when he brought him home today that he has yellow around his eyes. Is this a normal color or a fungus? I haven't picked him up and inspected his underbelly yet because he's still spooked from the car ride and the new surroundings. He's very sweet and friendly, but he's also kind of nervous right now. Any help would be appreciated. This is our first experience with bearded dragons.

(I can't figure out how to turn the images, and the lighting isn't great, but hopefully the yellow shows enough)

Thanks, Chelsea.

Of note- Calvin just recently shed. On Thursday when we met him for the first time he had a little shedding skin left on his front leg.

Hi Chelsea.....Calvin looks very healthy + beautiful. :) You are right, the lighting is not good so the pics are not showing all shades of color, but there does not seem to be anything that looks like Y.F. Many dragons have a touch of yellow around the eyes/mouth/ beard. Y.F. generally makes the area look like the scales are mucky and the spot would be irregular, different than a shed though.

Oh good. Thanks. I looked at a ton of pictures on the computer last night and saw that many beardies have yellow around their eyes also.

We took him out yesterday for a few minutes to run around and again this morning. I didn't get any pictures because he was a little freaked out and didn't last long outside of his tank.

Yes, I'm sure the color on his face is normal, I wouldn't worry about it at all. Hopefully he'll settle in soon to be a happy part of your family. He's been passed around a bit, so no wonder he's a bit nervous. He looks great though, so I think he'll do well. :)

Hello,

I agree, there doesn't look to be any fungal looking areas. It is pretty common to have yellow around the eyes. I hope he settles in for you. :D That is hard on them to go from home to home.
He is a great looking dragon!
