I need help folks. Our plated has lost a chunk from the side of its tail!!! It appears to be an old scar that has decided to slough off while its in shed. Any home remedy suggestions til I can get it to a vet?? I need to vent because being familiar with snakes and purchasing reptiles in general, I should have passed on this individual. It was the biggest, most beat up one at the expo, but my daughter fell in love with it. The wound looked to be an old burn scar that appears to have decided to fall off. I dont want it to heal up and then come off next shed.

The flip side is its eating better all the time. It ate two ground turkey meatballs last night. Speaking of which, how often do you guys feed, and what quantity??

Thanks
