    3AE51558-3BE2-4487-86B4-0EA6A0940BD6.jpeg is this the start of tail rot? I noticed the end of the tail color change over the past week or so just want to make sure there’s nothing to worry about

    Here is some info on tail rot---
    Causes of tail rot are:
    1. Injuries/trauma - caused by falls, or by any other bearded dragon.

    2. Malnourished - make sure he has a balanced diet and he gets the nourishment he needs

    How to identify tail rot:
    1. Dried out - Decaying tail won't be able to retain moisture, check if it's dried out completely.

    2. Very thin, brittle - Decaying tail won't be able to process nourishment, causing it to become more thin and brittle.

    What to do after finding out it has a tail rot:
    1. Go to a vet - very recommended
