Tail Rot????

I’m unsure if this is tail rot, my bearded dragon is currently shedding their whole body and is still waiting for parts of their tail. She is around 4 1/2 years old and she’s always had a slightly darker coloration on the lower end of her tail. As I was helping and checking on her shed I got a bit paranoid and worried as to whether or not this could be tail rot.

Hello,

The tail tip looks like it has healed up. How long has the end been in that condition & do you
know what caused her to lose the end of the tail?

Hello!
The tail tip has never actually fallen off of or been damaged, that I know off. She’s always had a slightly darker colored tail end, but as I was checking up on her shed I got a bit worried that the tip looked darker than normal. I’m not sure if i’m just being paranoid but i just would like to make sure if it is or is not tail rot.

Right now she’s currently in the process of shedding and I believe parts of her tail are still waiting to be shed.

Hello,

It does look like part of that area on the lower portion of the tail is going to shed. The tail
tip definitely is not infected. A lot of dragons have naturally darker pigmentation on the
ends of their tails.
Let us know how she is doing.
