Bearded Dragon Tail - shedding or rot?

Postby Mushu1049 » Mon May 10, 2021 3:47 pm

Hello,

I am new to owning a bearded dragon and got our girl, Mushu, from a breeder about a year ago as a birthday present for my oldest son.

Mushu is currently shedding but her tail looks much darker than it has when she has shed before so I was worried it might be tail rot. The color is dark, but not black - it is like a dark brown on top but the bottom looks normal, like the rest of her tail.

She is eating normally and her energy levels are the same, so I am hopeful there isn't a problem, but would love someone more experienced to give me their opinion.

thanks in advance for your help, I greatly appreciate it!!

Hi there, sometimes a tail can get really dark like that and still not be a problem. As long as it's not notably squishy or the opposite, thin + stick-like then it should be fine. :)
