Possible tail rot in 2 month old

Postby Brandon372 » Thu Nov 12, 2020 12:07 pm

I checked in on my little guy today and noticed his tail is a bit crooked with small segments looking darker then the rest of his tail. I’ve only had him 4 days. should I take him to the vet immediately? [Click image to enlarge]

So after observing him for the day I think he’s just shedding orange substrate- stained skin off of his tale. What do you think?

Hi Brandon, it may be some problem developing there. You can soak it in warm water with betadine [ from drug store] and after it dries you can apply neosorin. Just keep an eye on it while you treat it but find a good reptile vet in case it gets worse. It may be just shed with a slight kink in the tail but you'll know better after it sheds.
