I noticed my beardie with missing scale on her head and a dark area on her bottom lip. Could it be a result of shedding? An injury somehow?

Is she glass surfing or is there something in her habitat that she rubs against? Both look like injury from rubbing to me.

Well she has been shedding, and there is wood in her enclosure. A manzanita branch I sanded smooth, and a mopani stump. Theres a flat peice of rock. She does run fast when I feed her though maybe scratched herself or maybe glass surfing.

Hello,

They can definitely get a bit overzealous when they shed! Perhaps she did just rub her mouth/snout
on something. You can just use some raw honey on the area to help it heal up a little more quickly.

Yes! Whatever was on her mouth has disappeared! As to the cut on her head I believe it was from her food dish, a plastic "no escape" feeder dish. I have since removed that until I can get her an appropriate dish that dubia/superworms cant crawl out of.
