White Scales

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.
