Black Scales is it Scale Rot?

Postby Immbendytoe » Mon Nov 23, 2020 10:16 am

My bearded dragon has been seemingly brumating for about two months now. He has become more active and I can feed him a roach or two occasionally. I wasn’t concerned by this loss of appetite until recently when I noticed he may be sick. He is still alert like usual, he is 2 years old. Today I just noticed a few black patches on his stomach area. They aren’t dirty or anything, since I clean him regularly. They also aren’t him just changing color. I’m worried this is a serious issue can someone help?

Sometimes they have black scales on them that I consider to be like freckles. Those aren't a problem. Can you post some photos of the scales you're seeing? You can upload photos here https://www.beardeddragon.org/useruploads/ and post them to your thread using the XIMG button when you reply.
