My beardie croc has had stuck shed for about a week now and it won’t come off with warm baths or coconut oil and I’m afraid it’s started to make the scales underneath rot. Please anyone help

It's very unlikely to make the scales rot. Adults tend to take much longer to shed since they aren't growing as quickly anymore. Can you post a picture?

It looks more like just a stain than anything. When my girl moro lays in her poo her belly looks like that until she sheds it off lol! Either way, you don't need to be concerned about it :mrgreen:

It looks like a shed to me, I think I can see the clear tips of the shed coming off the new scales underneath. Give it some more time and it should come off by itself. It doesn't look like it's causing any issues right now.

Yep... looks like someone likes to adventure through their poop haha!
Phoebe belly looks like this most of the time... she also likes to lay in her salad so she is permanently stained with salad or poop! Glorious!

It's a harmless, uneven dirty shed that will come off when it's ready. Very common + no problem !

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!
