I Have a male veiled. He has these black stripes that come out behind his eye turrets and go back and up his head. These are permenant markings from my observations. Maybe you can see them in my gallery pics. Burns will be a uniform shape and gray to black, you will notice the diffrence in the skin between burns and Markings, burns have a diffrent texture. The markings on my veiled are symetrical on both sides of his head. I hope this helps a little.Chrispy said:so if its more of a permanant black thats more likely to be a burn....? will highlights change colours ? or...?
