  • Fecal Description - Regular droppings, brown and some white at the end. I haven't tested him for anything. (a struggle to find a vet with experience for chams.)

My veiled had one like that as well, my vet said it could be a build up under the skin from broken ribs. Is it Hard? If it's getting bigger than I would take him to see a vet.

Also does your multi vitamin have d3? Your night time temp only goes down to 73? What do you mean you use bigger vegetables as live plants to snack on?

My multivitamin includes d3 (zoo med reptivite)
That’s a little high(mainly in the summer) last night it went to 70.1 f*

And I used to give him veggies but he eats off the ficus tree now.

Looks like calcium build up around a possibly one fractured bone, calcium builds up around the healed bone, wouldn’t worry unless it gets bigger
