My Indian Star will be 3 April 24th. Today when I was bringing him in for the night from his outside enclosure I noticed some scuffs/abnormalities on his underside. I am curious if it is the starting of an infection or if it is from climbing over rocks and slate in his enclosure. I will update pictures. They do not seem to bother him and he has been eating and drinking with no issue.

Slight difference. I typed the wrong date. His hatch date was March 17th 2017. So he is 3 now. Not that it makes much of a difference 😅

Those are scrapes from crawling over hard surfaces. Nothing to worry about, but I would perhaps check to be sure there are not overly abrasive / sharp cornered objects that you could then change.

Thank you so much Mark. I will double check everything to see if I can adjust or move things to make it less of a struggle for him! He loves to climb and wants to go the hardest path possible every time. :tort:
