Dragons shed at different times and different areas- some take longer to shed off- your 14% uvb is in the tank or top of screen?Hi all, I wanted to make this post to hopefully put my mind at ease. I am on the more paranoid side as my last and only other beardie was a neglected rescue (who sadly passed due to the neglect being severe), so I may be a bit too worried.
My lovely 10 month old girl (Sushi) finished her last shed about 3 months ago and has since only shed one back leg, her chin and around her mouth (this was around 2 weeks ago) and hasn’t shed anything else since.
Is this okay? How long until I should be concerned? She looks healthy to me, is eating and pooping well but is hiding away a bit more than usual (not too much). I’ll add a pic of her here.

I thought so, just a bit paranoid! ThanksThat's normal, as they slow down putting on size they don't shed near as often, and it becomes really patchy.
