My bearded dragon is shedding part of his face right now, and where the shedding fell off there’s some black spots/scales now. Does anyone know what this is?

It's possibly a temporary discoloration as the new scales come in. It could also be a second shed coming through right after the first, which can happen sometimes during quick growth spurts. Keep an eye on the area though, and look out for scales that look scabby/damaged, or if the dark scales appear to spread or change a lot.

If there is no where in his tank where he can get close enough to his bulb to burn himself, then i'd say it's just shedding coming on.

Hi!

Did you peel off some of the shed skin? Because if you do, then the scales with grown back black.
Oh hey, this is a pretty old post lol. Those black scales ended up falling off for some reason a few weeks later and left him with a wound for a while, but now he’s healing up nicely. Just has a tiny scab where the wound was and a little smooth area around it.
