My bearded dragon is about 5 years old and has what looks like a build up of scales at the base of his tail that has turned a grey color. I was told by a vet that it is not anything to worry about. It has been very slow growing over multiple years and is about the circumference of a dime. Has anyone seen this before?

Can you take a picture of his tank by any chance

That looks funky - why did the vet not do a culture on it? We need AHBD to take a look at this

It stays pretty dry no misting. We give him a bath maybe once a month with just water.

O.K, looks like a nice bio active substrate. There's a small possibility that something in the substrate caused the growth or it could be jut a huge coincidence. I don' know what might have caused it but it might help to put some antifungal cream on it. You can get Lamisil at the Pharmacy and give that a try. Not sure what else might help. If you can find another vet to really check in to it that might get you some answers.

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?
