Reflagging to AHBD and Tracie--- make sure your getting your UVB up to par that coil is NO good and the Thrive uvb bulb is not any good either --

Hi there, it's probably just a little sprain, might have been caught in the hammock. It will most likely heal on it's own but if it gets worse you can have a qualified reptile vet look at it.

Hello,

I agree, it is most likely a sprain by perhaps catching the toe on the hammock. I don't
think it is gout or anything like that currently.
You could get some unpasteurized honey to put on that toe if needed. Does it seem to
be bothering her?

Tracie


It doesn't seem to be bothering her, everyday I've been touching to to see how it feels compared to the other toes and if it's hurting her but she isn't showing any signs. I also removed the old hammock and replaced it.
I've had her for about 2 weeks now and it doesn't seem to be getting better or worse.

Yes! I'm waiting for my new bulbs to come in and for a new tube light fixture as well.

When you get the new UVB please post back here so I can help you get it placed in the tank - depending on the screen and the T 5 or T 8 that you got they have certain distance and placements

If you look at my past post, mine had something similar. I never figured out the cause and it’s been years now. It didn’t change and it never bothered her.

Here's a mini update: the toe was getting better and the swelling started to go down but then it got worse, im planning on taking her to a vet bc I think its infected now, its VERY swollen in half the toe
