Or did he try to peel it of himself
Hey she has just finished shedding! We only got her a month ago and she's been shedding the whole time. My partner does pull off some she'd but only the stuff that's pretty much off ( I do tell him off for this) I don't specifically recall seeing any shed in that area but I may missed it

She may have pulled off a scale and when a scale is pulled off, It grows back black and there's nothing you can do about it but watch if it gets infected

Because your not really supposed to peel off shed because it might still be on their scales

My guy as some of those black spots it’s not a big deal most likely just pigmentation of that particular scale. They develop little spots like that it’s very common. No need to worry

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
