So I noticed my little snow Tessera shed probably yesterday, impossible to tell and with her colors didn’t realize she was in shed, but checking her over noticed a good bit of stuck shed at the end of her tail. After a warm compress (and being pooped on cause nobody likes their tails messed with) I got it off but noticed something concerning. There is a good tint of red beneath the scales. Bruised? Circulation comprised?
I’ve heard of corns losing tail tips cause of this kind of thing and am wondering if this is what I’m dealing with and if there’s anything I can do to prevent this with babies in the future. My opal girl had the same thing happen with some stuck shed but no discoloration after removal.
