Newly Rescued Beardie has Fungus?

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.

This is Atlas, he's my 3 year male leatherback. i don't know whether to be worried as he has no femoral pores what so ever, not even small ones! i always thought they would come with age but he is getting a bit older now and i'm starting to worry. here are some photos of his lack of pores. if someone could let me know if this is healthy that would be greatly appreciated!!
I don't own Swordtail anymore. He owns me
Swordtail is being the chonky turd he is
Hmmm.... May make a dress for her lol
