Nose scale

Postby Beansskink » Wed Mar 06, 2024 3:18 pm

My Irian Jaya's nose has a few dents in it and looks a bit rough. All of the other scales on his body seem fine. Should I be worried about it, and if so is there anything I can do about it?
He has also been glass surfing a ton, I think it's because it's mating season for him- I've tried covering the front in a towel and it didn't help, is there anything else I can do about that?

Absolutely nothing you can do if they are in season. Even if there is not another of the opposite sex around, it is programmed into them. They often rub their noses sometimes raw, in which case I'll put a little peroxide on it. No cause for concern. Males are more apt to do this, but I see it with my females also during mating season.
