hi all,

i have recently joined the WD owners club, when i was originally looking to get a pair, the house i was living in was too small and so i didnt think it would be fair on them if it was too cramped up.

i have recently moved house into a much bigger place so i thought its the perfect time to start preparing and then get them.

after 6 months of preparing the viv and getting everything under the sun in preparation for them, moving everything about 50000 times before i was happy nothing would fall, plenty of hiding locations, temps correct, humidity correct etc, i finally picked up Puff and Yoshi from my local pet shop.

the pet shop owner didnt have a great deal of knowledge about WD's, but as he deals with beards and every other form of lizard i was using him more as a general advice line.

they have both been moved in for 2 weeks now, and puff has taken extremly well to the new viv and bounces about everywhere and is bulking out very fast, but Yoshi is significantly more sedate, and i rarely see him eat, hench im a bit worried.

they are both 3 months old ish, both are very happy to be handled, i have a high body temp so they love my heat, and its always a fight to put them back in the viv.

i have also noticed Yoshi has a small mark on his upper lip, which concerns me, i have taken him to the local vet (who im not exactly confident knows much about reptiles)
and he has given me some antibiotics for him, but trying to give them orally is a nightmare, so i have added it to the drinking water, i know puff will also be drinking this, but at least if its anything transferable it should protect her im guessing.

can anyone give me any advice on what this brown mark could be and why yoshi is so sedate ?
