Tail rot or natural coloring?

Postby MothmansMommy » Sun Jan 17, 2021 7:25 pm

So my beardie just got done with a tail shed. I got him last week so I’m not really sure what his normal is, I’m also a new reptile parent. I have a wellness vet check set up for him but it’s not until feb. 11th. I got some betadine just in case but what are you guys thoughts?[Click image to enlarge]

Looks like natural coloring to me. :)

Maybe it’s pre shed, like the skin turns a milky color a week or two prior to shedding.

He was peeling but I think it finished cause it started at the base and I found a piece perfect shaped like the tip of his tail. Does the discoloration from shedding last until after?

It can, it depends on your dragon and their shedding patterns, my crew all have different shedding patterns usually so it varies from lizard to lizard. :)
