I've read up about it can't find much information aside from combating it with antibiotic cream, will be bringing into the vet soon but is this something that might be potentially fatal? I'd appreciate greatly any info on what it might be....

@AHBD mainly collard greens and meal worms, about a week ago though it could've been there longer, also is remedying with diluted antibiotic cream a good/safe approach that's the typical Google answer

It may be that a mealworm but the tongue once, I'm not sure at all because the pic doesn't show anything distinct but I'd use a little raw honey since whatever you put on it is going to get swallowed. Still, if there is a little wound there it may heal on it's own. If you can, get some better pics without stressing him.

It is a little hard to tell by the picture but I agree with AHBD that a worm might have bitten the end of his tongue
which does happen sometimes. Using some raw, unpasteurized honey on the end of the tongue could be very
Has he been able to eat very well?

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?
