Tail Rot?


Original Poster
I’m not sure if this is tail rot or her tail changing colors but today I noticed a darker tone towards the tip of her tail. I didn’t notice it yesterday so I’m wondering if I’m just paranoid or if it’s tail rot? I’m not sure if tail rot occurs overnight too but just to be safe, here are some photos. Her coloring at the time of this photo was on the darker side but it was because she just took a bath and is drying off.

Hi, their tails can turn dark naturally and be no health threat at all so it's very common. It can also happen if a shed is coming on too or just a mood at times.
