Possible tail rot starting?

Postby OOPSY » Wed Sep 18, 2019 4:37 pm

I’m not sure if it is it’s just the very tip of her tail noticed it today while i was bathing her. If i gently grab it with my fingers she doesn’t do much she might move to see what i’m doing if i press just a little she pulls her tail away. Now i know nobody would like having the tip of their tail squeezed so idk what to think. She also hasn’t shed since may/june so I don’t think it has anything to do with that. [Click image to enlarge]

Hi there,

Looks like the very start of some shed. It's not tail rot though :)

Hi there,

They can definitely start in weird ways sometimes, and it seems to be different every time. I wouldnt worry about it but if things dont progress you can always reach back out :)
But I'm about 100% sure it's just shed :D

Definitely think you’re correct i gave it a few days now the rest of her tail is starting to look faded kind of. Pretty sure she’s coming out of her brumation she’s started eating like crazy again, so she must finally be getting ready to start growing again.

Coming out of brumation?????????? She if anything would be starting it -- brumation is like hibernation for other animals--- awake in the spring and summer and sleep in the cooler colder months-- there is a Article on Brumation under Articles Behavior and Anatomy right side of page -- Bearded Dragon Brumation

Some beardies will do it in the summer i live in canada summer here is winter in Australia. Besides that i’m pretty sure it was my A/C that did it. Trust me i freaked out about it for awhile and i found some information about it and i know a girl who works at the pet store in my town who says her beardie usually does it in summer.
