Our beardie Mazzie's tail gets darker at the end of her tail. She is sheading her tail skin right now. The tip seems very dark. No injury that I know of. We have had her for about 2 months. I am concerned that her tail is darker at the end.

Her tail is fine - tail rot is caused by nips bites or pinches- I don't see any of that - different color is shed-

Thank you for the reply. I am doing my best to take care of this baby. My 18 year old daughter bought her a few months ago and she is too busy to care for her. I've been doing a lot of research the past few months. There is a lot to know. I'm so glad you think her tail looks normal!

I agree it's fine. Tails can get much darker than that too but it's still always good to ask here even though the great majority of the time it's normal..

There is something wrong with my beardies left eye!! I included a picture where it shows what her right eye looks like then the others are what her left eye is. She always has it closed (as much as she can) and she finally opened it for a bit when i misted her. I don’t know what i could be doing wrong and it’s not from sand because she doesn’t have it in her cage.
