My beardie has a black scab on his back foot. What is it from and is he okay!?!? I have searched and searched with no luck. Thank you!

OK that's definitely a scab or a growth of some sort. How long has it been there? Has it appeared to grow or spread? It may be healed over from an injury or it could be a growth. If it looks like it causes discomfort or if it looks like it's growing or spreading I'd bring him to an experienced reptile vet for an exam.

Just noticed it a couple days ago. Doesn't bother him to touch or anything. He is quite a jumper and explorer. Has little black/gray spots all along the underneath of his legs

The spots under his legs are femoral pores. They're used to mark territory. They're completely normal and nothing to worry about.
