    If the brown is shedding off into black then it needs a vet check as it very well could be necrotic.

    Hi again the shed on his tail come off today and there is brown underneath where the brown come off so I think it's ok. I also put digital thermometers (decent ones) in just now and now just waiting for temperatures to settle cool end has settled on 78.4f basking spot has settled on 93.7f and just waiting for the one in the middle to settle now its currently on 82f and climbing slowly.

    No it isn't. I have put off some major repairs to various vehicle shuts so I can have the biggest cage possible for Tai. Now no fun trips this winter but hey Tai has a jungle gym!
    And no problem.

    Your dragon is very handsome. Just an fyi, water dragons do not regenerate their tails when lost. So any funny looking black tissue should be watched closely. It almost looked like there was a constricting band of old shed causing the indent. This will cut off blood flow and the tissue will die and fall off.
    I honestly can't say for sure tho as the pictures were a bit blurry.

    I had a very young hatchling that regenerated the very tip of his tail. But it was only a couple cm that was missing. I have noticed that Tai hasn't regenerated anything so I guess I was mislead about it. Sorry tjjm to have given you false info.
    The pic where tai is under the ledge is from when he dug around his pond. One day he got stuck so I decided to help him out and hurried pieces of PVC around the pond to give him tunnels to play in. It worked for awhile bt now he prefers his climbing sticks

    It's so cute and don't worry about the information on his tail I read posts where some do and some don't regenerate so its ok. Also how old is tai by the way hes so cute.

    Tjjm I just wished to tell you that your dragon is very beautiful! I am glad he is accepting you and reacting so well to you. He looks like a very happy and healthy animal!

    Tai is about 2yrs old now. That cage looks great! I plan on getting a qualified carpenter to make facades for the CWD cage and the turtle tank that would math the cabinets in that room but I figured I would do the structural work so it fits how I want it designed.
    If only I was talented in woodwork...
