Deformed Baby BTS

Postby Pale_Monarch » Sat Mar 21, 2020 8:27 pm

Hello,
So I recently adopted a BTS that's assumably deformed.
What I mean by deformed is that it doesn't have a nose. My skink walks normally, and has normal reactions etc. But, my skink only licks its food.
I'm assuming that my skink is deformed because it it's only an estimated to be around a week old and had it been a battle wound it wouldn't have had enough time to heal.'m wondering, Does anyone else have a BTS with this deformity

I have never seen anything like that before. When they are young it is best to start them on a high protein diet of cat food or dog food. Some people will feed live food already as well.
