Looks like sand???

Hi all.

Both my beardies are young. Spike is 3 months and Gizmo is 4 weeks.

Today we noticed on Gizmo sand like stuff but it was really hard to get off him. The other day my bf had seen the same thing on Spike.

Do you know what that is?? Or is it just sand???

Hello,

Do you have them on sand substrate? A picture would be very helpful. Are they going to shed?

could it maybe be possible that one of them sustained an injury of some sort and the sands stuck to it?
or maybe the 2 of them had a fight and thats why they both have sand stuck to them?

well we only have the one now and it was just that once. and yes he is on sand substrate...... he also just shed his tail.... and looks beautiful.... im just wondering is it normal when they are shedding to dig in the sand and hide..... he does not cover himself with the sand. he just makes a lil hole so that he can lay in it
