Hi there,
Does this look like gout? I noticed this a few days ago and hoped it was pre-shed but now I am learning that gout is a possibility! Hampus gets salad every day and a 4-6 roaches or BSFL every other day usually. He also enjoys the Buffet Blend pellets from Flukers but still no more than 4-6 every few days - alternating with live insects. He wasn't eating greens very much for a while, but he is enjoying them again. This is happening on all 4 legs. Thank you!

That is shed -- they can swell at times to loosen the shed -- if it was gout he would be real touchy and it is painfull --

Hello,

That is just some swelling from the area getting ready to shed. The scales on top trap water in between
the top & underneath layer when developing. It should be fine once the areas all shed.

Buffy snuggling with my partner!!!
So freaking handsome I just love youuuuu so much 💕
There is something wrong with my beardies left eye!! I included a picture where it shows what her right eye looks like then the others are what her left eye is. She always has it closed (as much as she can) and she finally opened it for a bit when i misted her. I don’t know what i could be doing wrong and it’s not from sand because she doesn’t have it in her cage.
