Natural colour or yellow fungus?

Beardie name(s)

Hello!

This is our second bearded dragon and im still learning so much about these guys. I noticed our buddy going through a shed (you can see his head and chin are very pale) and all of a sudden noticed how yellow his beard/under belly looks. When I googled this there is so so much about hello fungus. Naturally, I have concern except that it looks like it has a pattern to it which I feel a fungus would not? What do you think?

I'd wait for an expert's opinion, but my beardie has a similar thing on her beard & shoulders! When I looked into it I found yellow fungus is typically crusty and patternless, so it looks like it might just be a marking for him!

Also I want you to know his belly spells "Hi" :]

yes my thinking too! Going to keep an eye on it and see how it looks after this shed. He's also on Baytril for respiratory issues. :( You are so clever, it does say hi! haha Can you show me photo of your beardy?

Definitely natural color. I've had beardies of many shades of yellow to red. Some of them were tri color with red/yellow/orange. Here's a pic of one of my boy's yellow bellies.

oh wow! It just seems so off from all of his other colours haha what colour is this babies back?
It's hard to pin down what color she'd be considered 🤔 Early on she looked more like a creamsicle, but now there's patches of reddish orange, cream, and even blue. Sometimes she looks like a dull brown, but when she's active or eating she lights up in a fiery blaze. Back when I rescued her I thought she was a standard due to the awful lighting lol

edit: lol mixed up the posts

What a gorgeous beardie! Mine has a slight tint of orange in her beard so it's just his natural coloring:)

My guy, Thor, turns yellowish when he's working toward shedding. Most tend to turn whitish, but not all. He's normally whitish with tan and orange, but his shed is yellowish and medium brown

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?
