I got him 2 days ago from a breeder/ store owner who is well trusted in my community. When I asked about it he said it was tail nip and not tail rot. He said it should just fall off next shed like you said and heal. He also said his older bearded dragons (which I saw) had the same nip tail and were fine.How long have you had him? The tail tip definitely got damaged. It looks a bit older though. It will likely fall off. To ward off infection you can put some raw unpasturized honey on it. Just make sure there are no insects left in the tank that would be attracted to the honey and nibble at the tail.
Will do, thanks for letting me know, for the future how can you tell if something is infected or if it is tail rot. Is this tail rot?Tail rot is simply an infection of the tail; which can occur when the tail is damaged and bacteria is allowed to infect the wound. That's what the suggestion of raw unpasteurized honey is for. It's a natural antibiotic and has wound healing properties.
