Black spot on mouth

Postby fiestyjess » Mon Oct 10, 2011 7:41 pm

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

Got home this evening and my beardie make has a black spot on his lower jaw I looked up mouth rot and it doesn't look like that. Hes 13 weeks old. Housed on paper towel. Have two repti sun 10.0 fluorescent bulbs and a basking light that keeps their basking surface area at about 108. Over on the cool side is about 88ish.
I'll post a pic in a few minutes.

Kind of looks like it's missing a scale(s) there. Bad shed maybe? I'm not too sure, maybe someone else will be along soon to give you a better idea.

Have you tried soaking him in a bath and trying to wash it off? Hopefully all it is is some stuck on food or poop. It's happened before. Does it seem to be sensitive to the touch or inflamed?

I would see if it washes off. We had the same thing happen with one of our lizards and brought him to the vet and felt like ***** when she took a wet qtip and it wiped off. haha.

:D They eat like piggies so it makes sense for them to get it on themselves occasionally.
