I am hoping someone might have some insight for me on my beardies face scales. A few days ago I noticed that the scales on his upper lip area reaching to his nose look white/pinkish. I didn’t notice this the last shed and am not sure if this is normal and he’s getting ready to shed or if this is an issue.

Looks like a normal, healthy shed. Face shedding might make him irritable for a little while and you'll likely see him wiping his face on things to loosen the skin. Eye bulging is also pretty common when they start to shed on their face - nothing to worry about.

Thank you much for your reply! I am a nervous wreck, we have lost a baby beardie in the past now I analyze and stress over everything!!

I understand the feeling =(. Based on those photos, your guy looks nice and healthy to me. Looks like an arm and a leg shed coming on too. If you have any other questions please feel free to ask.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
