Beardie woke up with brown spot on leg?!

Postby Alohatif » Fri Jan 24, 2020 5:57 am

Hi All- has anyone seen anything like this before?

My Yoshi woke up with a brow spot on the joint on his leg. It won't wipe off and he took a bath before he slept last night. He seemed to climb up his basking rock alright and didn't care when I tried to gently wipe off the spot.
He's also on medication for pinworms at the moment...if that may influence it...

Any ideas are appreciated!

Thank you!

Looks like a food stain but others would need to look

Something he's dragged his leg thru- sometimes they get stains on their mouths or belly's from things they've eaten - have you tried washing it off

I agree that it looks like a stain more than a wound. If you don't see signs of a wound then you might want to just keep an eye on it for a bit. Make sure it isn't changing or spreading (which would indicate that it is not a stain). It looks like his leg is about to shed so the stain may go along with the shed once that's done.
