My beardie has some sort of tail problems prior to me getting him. It was black, now it looks like it is white in color? Help, is this a concern??

Hi there, he's a cute little dude. :) The tail + head are just going in to a shed, it;s very common and totally normal. I see there was trauma [ probable bite ] from when he was younger but it looks to be healed. Post a few pics after he sheds again , with close ups of the end of the tail. But from what I see it looks fine.

AHBD- thanks for the response! Just curious, how often do they she’s because he literally just had a full body shed not even 2 weeks ago!

When they're growing they shed a lot, and " teenage" dragons can have silly looking sheds that linger like this one of mine :

It can be like that for weeks, sometimes longer with an adult.

Thank you!! How fast do they grow? I measured him in 10/30 and he was 6”, nose to end of tail(what’s left of it) and on 11/10 he was 7”, so about 1” in 1.5 weeks!

They all grow at different rates, just like us :)
Sometimes dragons go through growth spurts where they grow really quickly in short bursts, other times their growth is more linear.
