i just discovered these black spots on the bottom of my dragon’s tail after his bath today. i’ve not been able to handle him much recently because i just had surgery so i don’t know if they just popped up or not but does it seem bad? i’ve looked it up and can’t find anything similar but i will continue to look.
i do know that he has a bit of stuck shed on the middle portion of his tail and i’ve been soaking him and have been using shedding aid as well and that’s where most the spots are but it does spread down towards the tip of his tail as well.
he’s 2 years old and he’s in a 75 gallon tank, his basking spot is around 95 F and he has uvb, he eats 3 dubia roaches a day and gets a salad of greens and green beans and some other vegetables depending on what we have and the occasional fruit. his salad is dusted with calcium as well. he’s acting fine but i just want to make sure it isn’t anything terrible and in case it is bad i want to catch it early.

It looks like shed. But have you also tried brushing it with a soft toothbrush to make sure it isn’t poop? Kinda resembles that as well.

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
