Bert has a dark ring around the base of the tail. I saw tail rot starts at the top so I don’t think that’s it. I am Super new to dragons so any help would be appreciated.

Tail rot does not start at the base of the tail— 99% of the time it starts at the tail tip, and dark coloration alone is not a good symptom to go by when getting a diagnosis of tail rot.

The key symptoms that you should watch out for are necrosis, sores, and dry scales. Try gently pressing on the affected area, if he flinched or shows signs of pain then it would be ideal to get veterinary intervention.

That is most likely an upcoming shed or simply natural coloration, nothing more.

I agree with the others about it being a band of normal shed, no problem. As far as a dragon flinching if you press their tail, that can be totally normal and not a sign of pain or something wrong. Some animals naturally don't like their tails to be touched.

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
