Weird Shed or Tail Rot?

Postby Munchykin » Wed Feb 24, 2021 10:26 pm

Hello
My beardie is currently shedding so his humidity is high all the time. It’s around 50%-35% all the time on either side to aid in shed. I’m worried that the constant high humidity is causing tail problems? I’m having nightmares about it. Please let me know
Also the high humidity is only that high FOR shedding reasons it’s never that high unintentionally
Thanks!!

Hello,

That area looks like it still needs to shed? I don't think it is tail rot though, he hasn't injured
it in any way, correct?
They often have issues with strange sheds on their tails though so just keep an eye on it to
make sure that it sheds properly. You can also add or use some coconut butter or shea butter
to the tip to help moisturise the tip for him.

Hello,

Let us know how his tail is coming along. Hopefully it will shed off soon & get back to
normal for him!
