Help!
I got a baby bearded dragon last Friday he/she is around 2 months.
When I got them there tail was dullish now a week later it is very "bright" white.
I know this is shedding but I've never seen just their tail take so long to get to this point.
It hasn't even started to peel no signs it's going to either.
Just nervous! Someone help!?

I've attached a picture from today if you can zoom In and have a look?

Cheers guys!!

Looks like shed to me. It takes my little one forever to shed too. It also isn't all at once (back end first, then arms, then body). Just give it some more time, it should shed off. You could try a bath to help ease the process too, but even without baths, my beardie sheds fine.

If it's taking a long time for an area to shed, a soak in luke warm water (about 32 degC) in a VERY SHALLOW tub , water no deeper than beardie's waist , this can help loosen up the old skin.

If the problem area is on the back , a soaked piece of paper towel can be placed on the area and left there to help soak the old skin and maybe loosen it up.

Cheers guys!

Still no sign of peeling yet! Have been giving baths everyday. The end of the tail seems to be getting darker. His head peeled today bless him. Just hope his tail will hurry up just worried. It never takes this long in my experience!
