Hi all

Ive noticed today my girl Charlie has these random yellow scales on her face and head

She's got a vet checkup booked next week for her first visit- but do these scales look sinister ..? Or are they just discolored bits of scales due to her growing ?

No Y.F, just random specks of different color which is very common. Charlie is looking very pretty !

I thought so ! I just only noticed them today and I didn't quite see them in my other photos of her- but she's growing pretty quickly so hard to spot for me ! Thanks for the reassurance !!

She's gotten a bit spoiled now and will only eat roaches over the BSFL and crickets but at least she eats the kale :lol: could be worse !

Hello,

Those scales are definitely not yellow fungus just pigmentation coloring. He is very cute,
nice colors!
He looks healthy, how is his appetite?

Thanks for that ! The scales on the face are a little bright/raised and they look kindof new, but i think she's (or hes, not 100% sure yet) just growing into her colours maybe :lol:

Appetite has generally been quite good up until the last two days where it came down just a little, she refused BSFL and crickets but eat woodie roaches still. I bought crickets only after running out to offer variety but she refused, so i went back out to get the roaches. I also changed the UVB bulb just in case. She ate plenty of roaches after and ate a good handful of the BSFL too so id say shes eating well !

Estimate to be between 4-5 months old and weighs 110 grams .. is this an ok size for a juvie?

Hello,

How is her appetite doing today?
They sure can eat a lot right? Her size sounds fine to me. How long is she?
Her colors will most likely continue changing as she gets older & with each shed, also.

Let us know how she is doing.

Hi Tracie, she seems to be eating fine- not completely ravenous but will chase food. She certainly prefers roaches but will eat BSFL in her salad or crickets. :lol: I only feed her once a day now but she has fresh salad daily with lots of BSFL mixed in for her to dig out as she pleases

She 12 inches long!
