Is he about shed?

Postby Emily7709 » Thu Jul 02, 2020 7:42 am

Hi, I got my 3 month old dragon two weeks ago and he was very healthy. For the past two days he has become skittish (doesn't want to be held), lazy, and rarely eats. Is he about to shed? The picture isn't great but his tail is a different color from his body which I haven't noticed before. It seems duller. Please let me know, I am worried.

Yes the tail can turn a different color when going into shed -- they may go to a grey or opaque color as well -- hes going thru relocation stress - it will effect his eating along w/ the shedding as well - but he should not quit eating all together-- if you want to go over his tank lighting and basking temps we can do that to make sure hes got the proper husbandry and to ward off future issues
you can post a pic of his tank and lighting
