We think it's a bite from a super worm. [Click image to enlarge]
the small purple spot looks indented. We have a vet appointment on Monday. Very few vets take care of reptiles. The large purple spot is getting smaller. I did find 1 super worm alive in the tank.

Wow, I was going to order some supers in our next bug shipment, but I'm not sure I want to. Crazy that something that size could cause such a big mark.
Ikwym about the vet - we have one 30 mins away that will see them, but the only one on that website is 1.5 hrs away. 🤪
