Dark spot on beard


New member
I noticed a few weeks ago, my beardie had this dark cluster of scales on her beard and it seemed to have this whitish part hanging off that just looked like shed or old skin or something. It fell off and the dark spot seemed to be less noticeable, so I brushed it off. Now it's getting dark again, so I'm curious as to what it could be - hopefully nothing serious. She's a little camera shy, so it was hard to get a picture, so I hope this helps. Any info would be appreciated. She's my first beardie and I've had her for a few years, so I'm learning as I go.

Hi there, it is a small patch of damaged scale but I've seen this in one of my own and other dragons here. It's generally not harmful at all, I've never seen any problem with any that I've seen but just keep an eye on it. You can use a 50/50 or a little weaker bit of betadine + water [ from a drug store ] or chlorhexidine or silver sulfa cream. A bit of raw unpasteurized honey would do good as well but it's very sticky and you need to be sure there are no loose insects in the tank. I'm sure it will be fine. :)

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!
