    Hi, please could you help me I’m a first time lizard owner and have never experienced either scale rot or shedding. He has dark scales very different from normal above his head yesterday and today he has more by his eyes. What can/should I do? He was very normal yesterday and today didn’t come out of his hide at all. When I took the hide out to check on him he didn’t really want to move but was alive and moved until I put the hide back. Please could I have some advice? Thanks.

    Sorry you havent had any replies. We don't have many reptile people here.
    @Acidic Angel might know.

    I wish I could help, but unfortunately I have very limited experience with lizards aside from geckos. I've not see anything like this.

    I would recommend maybe a vet visit going by your description, that doesn't sound normal to me. I'm sorry I couldn't be more help.
