It definitely looks that way. But I can assure you it wasn't there a few days ago. It just doesn't make sense.
I'll be hopefully getting him into a vet tomorrow. For now I've been putting some Betadine on it. He did eat a few roaches today, so that's good at least.
Not sure how this happened...
Hey guys. I just noticed today that my guy has an issue with his lip area. It's like it came on overnight or something.
Is this known as mouth rot? Something else? I'm gonna see if I can get into the vet on Monday but was curious what you guys thought. I feel terrible for him.
This is funny, because I used to have a Veiled chameleon named Milo (RIP). And he was an angry guy from the time he was a baby until he passed away. Always hissing, biting at me. My Panther, Lewis, is as sweet as can be, though.
These things are quite tiny btw.
Also, about half of them are white and slowly crawling around the walls, and the other half are still stuck to the walls, but brown-looking and motionless. Almost as if they dried up.
I didn't see any under their wings. But I did see a male that looks like he has some coming from his butt area (very end tip of his body....not sure if that's where it's butt is). I also found a male dead. Not sure the cause.
This is so nasty.
It's just weird because I've had this happen twice now in the past few month. And I've never had this issue ever over the years, and I'm doing nothing different.
Another odd thing is, they're only 'slithering' along the walls and inside the lid. Not on the egg cartons, food, etc.
Thanks for the replies. There isn't much frass at all right now, since I don't have a TON of dubias in this bin. And the only food that's leftover are a few baby carrots the roaches have been munching on, and some dried up collard greens they didn't eat. Like I said, I've never had this issue...
So, I've been keeping/breeding dubias for years, with no issues.
But about a month ago, I opened their Sterilite tub and noticed these tiny maggot-looking things on the side walls of the tub. I cleaned the tub out and thought I'd be fine.
Well today I notice they're back. I'm not sure...
I uses magnets for attaching branches. Makes it super easy to remove them when cleaning the cage.
These magnets are strong. I have a screen cage but it'd work with glass as well.
I made the switch to banded about 5 months ago. I wish I had done it sooner.
I order 1,000 at a time (from Josh's Frogs). I have never had even 1 die off. Not one.
They don't smell like the house crickets either...another plus. They're also more active.
Bandeds have more protein in them than...
