Help! Yellow Fungus, or Regular Shed Coloration Difference?

Hi! My beloved beardie Rosy is a mature beardie, and just had a slight shed from her face. Her colors do sometimes change with a shed, and she’s eating, pooping, and acting normally. Energetic and healthy. But I don’t love the yellow tinge to her mouth. I’m going to get it checked by a vet anyway, just to catch it early if it’s yellow fungus. But I’d love some other opinions on it in the meantime, as I’m panicking. Hahaha. I love my baby girl, and keep her tank clean. But who knows. I just want to see if other beardie owners think this is normal skin coloration change after/during a shed, or if it looks like yellow fungus to them.

Thanks so much, my beardie beautifuls! Appreciate you!

Its coloring along w/ shed -- that is not YF
Yes. And it looks like the head scales about to shed are that underlying yellow color underneath of them, if you look closely. I just wanted others’ opinions to make sure it wasn’t the dreaded YF. Thanks so much for sharing yours. Much appreciated! She’s probably just fine, but I will keep an eye on it, because your only chance of saving them is catching it super early with that. I agree, though. Don’t think it’s YF. Thank you my dear.

I have questions about bubbles on our bearded dragons eye.

So he’s gotten bubbles on his eye. We wiped them off and it’s only been twice in the last few weeks. Should we be concerned? No coughing or congestion. He’s very hungry and sleeps well. He’s 8-9 month range. His humidity is 30-40 day time and as high as 50-55 at night to early morning.
Should we be concerned?
Swordtail has been doing a whole lot of "Lizard yoga" lately
Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
