This is what i was calling necrotic. I was under the impression that tail rot is a tissue issue not a scale issue. But I'm also not an expert.
so the one in this photo is just shedding?It can be difficult at times to determine if a wavy dark tail is developing tail rot because a perfectly healthy b.d. like this one [ belongs to one of the mods. here ] with an extremely dark tail can look alarming but still be a non issue.
What am I feeling for? It will be hard or squishy if infected?Sometimes tail rot is developing under the scales before it all gets the brittle look. Try very gently squeezing the tail from the " good " area down to the dark area to see if it feels squishy down there. Remember, just do so gently.
