Hello everyone, I just rescued a female bearded dragon a few days ago from my cousin. I am new at caring for beardie, so I was perplexed when I saw that the beardie has a dull color and it’s getting darker to the tail. He said that there is nothing to worry about, but I am still concerned. Could you guys take a look and possibly help me to see if there’s anything wrong with my beardie? Thank you so much <3

I am planning to take her to the vet but I could not do it until next week, So maybe there's something I could do as a first aid. Is it Fungus? And why is there black patches around her back?

Very pretty dragon 🐉, i don't see anything from that pic. Can you post pics of the area your concerned about?

From the picture you posted, I see no issues. No fungus is visible (fungus is extremely rare).

The tail darkening is extremely common, and is actually a normal behavior just the same as head bobbing, arm waving, and black bearding are.

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
