Hello, Can someone please tell me what this is or what would cause it? I noticed a black dot on his rear yesterday and today it looks like this. Any help and suggestions of what I can do would be great!
it was a black spot about the size of a dime and this morning I looked at him and it was red and had dried blood all down his tail. There is no way it could be a chemical or flame burn as he always stays in his cage. His lights are a good eight inches from his basking spot and he never climbs on the cage. He did have crickets in there which I took out this morning. He seems to be acting normal good colors just a little sleepy but that might be due to just being on a weekend vacation and his lights were not turned on and off correctly by the chamsitter.
yikes! if i were you id get the little guy to the vet ASAP!!! if there was dried blood then that could meen hat something sharp is hurting him. check around the place he sleeps and his favorite place to be during the day to see if theres anything sharp!
