Swollen toe and nail sticking out

Postby beardloaf » Fri Feb 21, 2020 4:42 pm

Hi! My beardie's toe has been like this for awhile. I wanted to see if it would go away on its own, but that doesn't seem to be happening. His toe is larger than all of his other ones, slightly whiter, and his nail is sticking straight out as opposed to his other nails which curl down. He doesn't show any reaction to me touching it and it doesn't seem to be giving him any pain, but it's still concerning me. I give him baths regularly and I feed him out of his viv, so there can't be any crickets biting at him while he's relaxing.[Click image to enlarge]

Can you post a couple of more pictures for us, of his hands/toe area for us?
Please review your tank setup for us, such as the type/brand of UVB, temperatures,
supplementation & diet just so we can help you better.
How long has the toe been swollen for & does it seem to bother him any?
