Does this look normal.
First time owning a bearded dragon she was shedding when I got her about a month ago. She had some minimal stuck shed, which was easily removed in her bath.
However I have been keeping an eye on her ear and it looks like it has a layer of film in it. The film layer is just barely on the inside of her ear.
I don't want to touch it in case it's her eardrum or something but wanted to post just in case it's shed or something that I need to worry about.

It looks like shed and will eventually work its way out

stuck shed is actually rare. now, that is not to say it does not exist at all, but in the vast majority of the cases, it is just because dragons slow down on their sheds as they age. they shed in patches instead of the whole body. there is no need to help them shed, no need to buy products designed for the same purpose. just let them be, they know what to do. when it gets to the point the shed is extremely dry, you can use a soft brush to help out. ears and noses should very much be left alone because you can actually cause damage if you try to "help them" in those areas.

Good to know thank you. There is so much conflicting information on the internet, glad I can come here for reliable advice!

oh trust me, i know it! we rescued sir henry of scales near death when he was about 6 months old. finding this forum and following the advice given here literally saved his life. he's gonna be 4 years old mid-june and is a healthy, beefy, prime example of a dragon that likes to sit in windows and watch the world go by 😁 . it's difficult to get them set up at first due to all the misinformation, and the need to fine tune to each individual environment. once you have things dialed in, it is mostly checks now and then to verify things aren't off.

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!
