Is this mouth rot???

Postby boredism69 » Sun Aug 19, 2018 1:12 pm

I recently adopted my beardie Cooper, and I noticed the tip of his tongue is a grey color.. and there is like a scab or something on his mouth. Does anyone know what this is or if it is bad? I have had him for less than a week. Also, is mouth rot contagious? I have another baby bearded dragon that I keep separate, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.[Click image to enlarge]

Hi there, the grey tongue tip is normal and the little chin spot is harmless, could be dried food or just a slight scrape. No mouth rot there, he looks good. :)

Good name =). I agree that the change in color at the tip of the tongue is normal. My dragon also has a scab like that on his chin. It sometimes sheds but eventually returns. I think it was originally caused by glass surfing and rubbing up against things. I'm not sure why it still grows back that way but it definitely doesn't cause any problems.
