Skin issue?

Postby beardiemom88 » Mon Sep 28, 2020 1:26 pm

My daughters friend had to get rid of her beardie so of course I welcomed him/her. I was given his tank and everything he's been used to. I only replaced his lighting with appropriate lighting and fixtures. I already have 2 youngins so I know what they need. About 2 weeks of having him his head and neck is turning yellowish with a hint of other colors in there and his tail (which I was told was bitten off by another) is starting to have some blue looking scales as well as his left rear leg. I dont know if something is wrong with him or what the deal is. He was not in great shape when he got here but he poops good and eats good. Can someone check these pics out please? :study:

To me it looks like a fungus-- we need AHBD or Tracie or both of them to look at this-- what did you upgrade is lighting to ?

That does look like shedding scales. I don't see cause for concern. It isn't likely to require intervention so I'd just wait and watch for those scales/patches to start to dry and break free eventually.

If there is any stubborn shed you can soak him in water and stroke him softly with a toothbrush.
