I looked over while chinga was climbing on the front of the enclosure and saw what looked almost like a cut,but I can't for the life of me find anything in his enclosure that could cut him.
I had him out for feeding , so I took these pictures before I fed him.
Is this scale rot? or does it look like something else? Should I just keep an eye on him until he sheds? He just ate so I don't want to mess with him right now. But in a couple days , what should I do.
Just for background, he's kept in a 55 gallon aquarium with aspen shavings, a smooth rock, a semi-smooth rock (definitely not rough) several bark hides (no sharp edges) and a ceramic water bowl.
Thanks guys
