My adult dragon hasn't shed for a while

Hello! My 2yo bearded dragon hasn't shed for 3 months and her skin is clearly old. She is getting bath 2x week, so I don't think she is stuck shed.

Doctors told me that she is healthy (but gravid and overweight)... So not sure what's causing this slow shedding.

Any ideas? She gets calcium and vitamine powder in her salad regularly too.

Dragons shed at different times and sometimes it may take quite awhile- too many baths-- will dry their scales out I would lay off the baths and let it do it's thing-

Got it. Thanks!

It has been the longest since she shed last time, so I started getting concerned. I thought it might be stuck shed but I guess not 😅

Thank you!
