Just picked up a new 6 to 8 week old blue bar ambilobe from Repticon. When i left the show and put him in his cage I noticed his tail was like this. Is that rot and cut off circulation from a bad shed. Thanks for the input
I would keep an eye on the edge of the blackness. Perhaps even mark it with a sharpie line, because if it's spreading you will need to see a vet. I would even go now, things like this always make me nervous, personally. Mine ended up needing half his tail amputated, and is doing phenomenal 2 years later.
The blue bulb is strictly for heat. It's a day bulb. I'll definitely do some more research on better gut-loading methods.
