Hi!
My pac is about 10 months old and is eating well, seems to be healthy and fine. I'm at school right now and he's a great pet for the dorm (everyone is entertained when its feeding time) but when i brought him along on an excursion to a local pet-store one of the workers (who has frogs and had a Pacman Fantasy Breed or something) noticed that the lower half of my pac's stomach, to his rectum, including his back legs and his two front paws (though not his upper belly) was pink.

He said it looked like the start of an infection and that if i went from cleaning my 10 gallon lined with Jungle Mix dirt once a month to once every 2 weeks, I should see an improvement...

the discoloration doesnt seem to bother him, he eats normally, but he doesnt move alot. Not that he ever moved alot in the first place, but maybe it is hurting him?

I'll try to post pictures soon but I was just wondering if anybody ran into this problem or a similar one and how they solved it

thanks!
