Shedding, also known as “Ecdysis” is the process where bearded dragons loose their outer layer of skin as a result of growing. The shedding process is most common for juvenile bearded dragons, as it’s this period of time where they grow the most. The answer to “When do bearded dragons shed” can differ for every individual. However there is a timeline which will give you a rough guide for shedding stages.
For many reptiles, it is common for them to shed their skin. This is because the outer layer of skin is tough and not very durable, so they will literally out grow their own skin. You will notice a slight change in skin colour when this process has begun. Commonly a bearded dragons skin will look dark and start to look grey, and sometimes even white closer to the actual shedding stage. This is the top layer of skin drying out so it can shed easily and peel off without any problems.
