Shedding or is something wrong?! Owner is away at college.

My daughter's bearded dragon, Mushu, started with a spot on his back a few days ago and it has continued to get bigger. I thought he was starting to shed but now I'm not so sure. Love any experienced opinions on the matter!! He can't be sick on my watch!

Probably a patch of irregular shed, but can you get a pic in better light ? Also can you post pics of the set up + how the light shines in the tank ?

That looks like a shed patch to me as well. As long as the basking light is well out of reach it isn't likely a burn.

Hello,

I agree, it looks more like an irregular patch of shed than a burn, really. Has it stayed the
same or has it gotten larger at all?
Is he eating normally for you?
