Hi, new beardie owner here. Current set up: New Beardie Owner Here - Have Questions :) | Introductions | Bearded Dragon .org

My beardie is shedding. Her beard, some arms, just finished her tail and two feet, it looks like her stomach is about to shed as it's getting a bit darker and I can see what looks like two layers of Scales.

However I noticed this little black tips appearing and got a bit worried. Hoping this is just part of the shedding process?

It looks pretty normal to me. All my dragons have looked slightly different when they shed. One of my hypo's would turn snow white for a few days before she shed. She was 100 percent het for zero so i assume maybe thats why. My other hypo doesn't turn white.
Just keep an eye on it and if it changes maybe post pics. There is some vet techs here, they will be able to be more educated than me.

Thank you. Yeah. She had these before but seems to be more now. But she's also getting closer to shed?

Maybe a vet tech could confirm too .

She's eating fine. Last bowel movement was healthy. She seems a bit more lethargic than usual, but she is shedding. Still alert and interactive, just seems sleepy.

Their behavior does change a little during a shed.
And as far as that goes all 3 of mine take naps through the day, sleepy on its own isn't really a red flag.

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
