Hello,

Shedding sometimes takes awhile. You can give a few baths weekly, to help out with shedding. Or you can also try using some
aloe vera gel to help with stuck shed too. Overall he looks good, how is his appetite doing?

If I gave him the chance he would eat me out of house and home he’s super energetic and he loves cuddle’s and surprisingly he’s best friends with my cat

Hi there, can you show a pic of Merlin's tail ? And BTW, beardies almost NEVER have problems shedding but it may seem that way as older , mature dragons take a long time. Those areas will shed on their own so you don't have to be concerned at all but you can use a bit of aloe if you want, just be sure there's no added ingredients like alcohol. Unlike snakes that shed all at once, beardies can shed in stages that take a long time to shed, it's natural.

His tail is so much better than it was when I got him he couldn’t even move his tail it didn’t help he could even walk but I’ve followed everything my vet has told me to do and he’s the happiest boy now . I just get scared when I see things That I’m unfamiliar with

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
