Is he black bearding?
If he is in pain his beard will likely be black. 8 inches isn't that far to fall. If he isnt black bearding, just keep an eye on him for a few days.

He is probably fine, but as suggested, keep
an eye on him for behavior changes, lack of
appetite, lethargic behavior, black bearding,
etc. Since he was asleep, he likely didn't
stiffen up or flail around & get injured.
At 8 inches, luckily that isn't too far of a fall.
Let us know how he is doing.

He seems completely fine this morning he holds his head up high and has stayed a light color all day I say he is fine! Thank you I just get so worried I think him just only caring about going back to sleep freaked me out lol

Great, it sounds like he will be just fine then. Since his beard isn't black & he is alert it doesn't sound
like he hurt himself!

This is Atlas, he's my 3 year male leatherback. i don't know whether to be worried as he has no femoral pores what so ever, not even small ones! i always thought they would come with age but he is getting a bit older now and i'm starting to worry. here are some photos of his lack of pores. if someone could let me know if this is healthy that would be greatly appreciated!!
I don't own Swordtail anymore. He owns me
Swordtail is being the chonky turd he is
