hi all, today when i got home from school i noticed chompy has a scale that seems to have fallen off or gotten injured somehow. it wasn’t like this when i left this morning. it doesn’t seem to bother him all too much, but i can see spots of scab / blood so i am worried. it’s only the one scale. he finished shedding on that area yesterday.

He may have bumped it or scraped it against something. If it doesn't seem to be bothering him, I'd keep an eye on it for signs of looking worse. But if it doesn't look like the damage is starting to spread, it's likely to scab, heal, and then be restored (or replaced in the next shed).
