Is this Tail Rot?

Postby McSuzie » Mon Jun 24, 2019 11:45 am

Hi, this is my first post and my first beardie. I have had him/her for 2 weeks (having a hard time gendering currently lol). I got him/her at petco and when I got him his tail was already a nub (partly why I got him I'm a sucker for pets with character) and I was told it happened when he was a baby. Hes healthy in every aspec and loves to run around the bed and floor. His tail however at the end is very dark and I'm worried its tail rot. Besides the round nub end its partly malformed and black at the round tip. Looking for opinions and/or help. Heres photos of pre shed and during a shed.

It looks to me like the end of the tail is just getting ready to shed. Keep a look out for the area to look shriveled or damaged, but if it doesn't change shape or size, I don't think you have anything to worry about. Since the tail tip wound is healed over, it shouldn't cause a problem going forward.
