Hi guys, our bearded dragon have been having half of the beard orange and the other half grayed out...no color. Its been like this for the past 10 days. We are worried that she has an infection. She eats like usual, her veggies and proteins, run around like normal. We are not sure why this is happening and what to do.

Any recommendations?

It is an uneven shed as mentioned, it's odd looking to owners that haven't seen it before but what you're seeing is the small orange patch already shed and the rest has not. It's totally normal, nothing to worry about at all.

Hello,

It does look like an upcoming shed. They definitely have odd looking skin sometimes right before
they shed. Once the skin comes off, it should become more even in color again.

I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate

What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
