EARLY ONSET TAIL ROT??

Postby clyde612 » Sun Feb 21, 2021 7:56 pm

Hi there,
I was giving my baby beardie a bath and notices that just the very tip of his tail is dark! I know shedding can make their tails darker, but it seemed like just the tip instead of a gradient from lighter to farther (which I assume is more like a shed). It is very small, not too concerning, but if I should act fast I will... I'm not sure if I should just keep an eye on it or inspect and call a vet... I also have no idea how to attach a photo on here lol

Unless it has some sort of injurie like a pinch or been nipped by another dragon it is more than likely NOT tail rot but shed --- can you post a different pic of the tail in question like closer pic of the area your talking about

Not tail for!
The wonderful world of bearded dragons is a magical land of mystery, enchantment, cuddles, love and, worry! A mysterious realm where things always seem to change in an instant and, the moment you think you have it all figured out, the rules change! You think you own your dragon, guess again. You are now a slave!!!
