Please don't worry about a pale tail , or lingering shed. It's perfectly normal . The internet and noob owners has people thinking they have to help all the dragons shed. Here is what a normal shed that happens in stages looks like. One of many that I've raised and seen the exact thing hundreds of times. It comes off when it's ready.

That's O.K.
BTW if your humidity is too low it will take longer to shed. Humidity should be at least 25-35 % and higher at night, around 40-60.

Using mineral oil and then being under a heat lamp can burn your dragon. Mineral oil is a petroleum product, look it up.

He actually told me to put it in her bath water. Which I’m going to do and have the lamp turn off for a bit.

Just make sure she doesn't drink it, actually the shed ease would be better because it has aloe in it. But either way, I'm sure the shed will come off soon and it's not going to be a problem. Basking light should always be on after a bath though to keep beardie warm. Just pat her dry after the bath + set her in her warm tank. But she'll be O.K.

I layed her next to me for a bit and had the towel covering her. But I over worry cause I had a dragon before that died. Of course that one wasn’t my fault cause the person I bought it from knew something was wrong. Although I don’t regret buying that one cause I did the best I could but because of it I over worry on small things that and she’s my little baby. Lol and Dragons remind me of a toddler and get into trouble a lot. Like I had her sitting outside, me hover over her of course and she kept eating grass and I had to constantly stop her. 😜

Yeah it's hard not to worry about our creatures that depend so much on us. My dragons eat weeds + grass outside all the time, have done for all the ones I've ever owned and it's perfectly fine. Some of the things like clover, dandelion, purslane are all good for them as well as other weeds. Keep away from English Ivy and if you have daffodils in the spring. Other than that , most of the stuff they graze on is fine. :)

I have some good news I took her to the vet again and explained and he said it sounds like she is going into brumation. I thought that but thought she was too young for it and he said while it is uncommon to Brumate when there young there is nothing to suggest a Beardie won’t do it early but it makes so much sense. What with her not eating much and decreased energy.
