Looks like zonata disease to me. Are they being kept too hot? Zonata do not tolerate high temperatures ( or at least they need a large area to retreat to with temps in the high 60's or low 70's). Nobody knows what causes this disease, but it is believed to be brought on by stress from too high of temps and humidity problems (lack of humid hide) by several in the hobby. Some think it is a virus. I believe in the stress theory due to the fact that some have had this occur in their collections and not affect more then one or two animals. Others have had it wipe out their entire collection, but all the animals were kept in the same conditions that could have caused the condition in the first place. I hope they improve and thrive for you. Sucks.

Joe
