Purple mark on foot?

Postby OhMyNord » Thu Apr 09, 2020 12:33 pm

I got my boy out earlier and was clipping his nails when I noticed his back foot, in between his toes, is going purple? Any ideas of what could have caused/is causing this? Never seen it before so it's definitely a new issue, worried it might be scale rot...

He's a healthy lad, always eats his bugs and greens. I calcium dust his food every 2 days and bath twice a week. Enclosure is a vivexotic 4ft, he's on tiles, a 10.0 UVB bulb (being replaced Saturday), temps are a little high but I have new bulbs due to arrive here Saturday, (I'm switching the basking light off for a while through the day to try and keep it cooler until the new ones arrive).

Any advice would be great guys, thanks.

Just raise the bulb up if its too hot, it could be just be a bad shed cant tell from the looks of it but just rub some natural honey on it or some natural aloevera make sure they have no additives

Hi there,

Definitely not scale rot. It looks more like he walked through his salad bowl. Any berries recently?

Hi Brandon,

he has had some raspberries this week and his front leg is red from it, so the purple was concerning! He's having a bath today any way, so I shall see if it comes off
