Randy, last year I had a parviruba that presented with the bad skin, dented scales, ect. However, I did not keep him around and take any chances. He was placed into another room for one week and then into the deep freeze. Some call that harsh, I call that safe. I am not taking any chances with my collection and I thought this to be zd by his appearance, although he did not present the nervous symptoms. With some of the things I have read lately, and how the collections were entirely wiped out, I am starting to lean toward a virus of some kind, where I used to think conditions alone caused zd. This parviruba came from a dealer that had zd in his collection at one time and I wonder if the virus had been dormant or just needed certain conditions to take over. This animal was the only zonata in my collection that did not have a humid hide and was sold to me as a female. I had placed him in with a larger male many times for breeding and he was, well lets say the larger male thought he was female too. I would say that caused this animal great stress and could have brought the condition on. I am just stating observations and assumptions though. We need research done.

Joe
