    Dark tail

    I have had my bearded dragon for about a month now but his tail has gone grey at the start of the tail and is almost black at the end is there something wrong or is this normal ?

    Hi there and welcome to the forum. Can you post a pic? Is it possible your dragon is going into shed? Shedding can cause their scales to appear white/grey.

    It looks fine to me too. Sometimes the tip gets damaged and ends up darker than the rest of the tail. As he grows and sheds he will come into his colour more.
