Strange coloration/ possible scale rot?

Postby Kieran007 » Sun Feb 28, 2021 6:27 pm

Hi, first time poster so I'm not sure how to start this but I have a female bearded dragon that I got from a friend back in November of last year. She just turned a year old and when I had her out tonight I noticed an oddity with a part of her scales on her side/back and I'm worried about the possibility of scale rot. Her humidity stays at around 30-40%. So far her appetite is normal and she doesn't seem unusually lethargic either. I am planning on contacting my vet tomorrow but figured it couldn't hurt to post on here as well. I've also attached a couple photos.

That just looks like a patch that is about to shed. I don't see cause for concern in those photos.

I agree, just a patch of shed that can be found anywhere. Leg, head, tail, etc. Everything looks fine. :)

Thank you Cooper and AHBD! This shed just looks different than the others we've been through and wanted confirmation.
