Hi guys I am just looking for some experts who might be able to tell me what could be going on with this iguana's tail? Seen at a pet store.

If she is just going to stay there and rot, I hope she dies real quick now. She is in a terrible condition, apart from the tail. So sad.

Animal control and a vet are involved now. Apparently it's hyperkeratosis probably from trauma and he's been treated by a vet several times, hm.
