Hi all, having a bit of trouble with Vera :/ a week ago I went to check on her and noticed a scale on her head was missing and there was a little blood, I changed her onto repticarpet to prevent infection and cleaned with water, it was healing nicely until yesterday when the same happened to the next scale along, I noticed she was climbing and falling off of a log roll I got her recently so have removed it just in case,
Is this likely physical damage or could it possibly be a disease :(
I've also noticed for a while a part of her shell just above her head sticks out a little so I'm thinking after she caught her scale on something maybe the next one got caught on her shell. I've attached some images
Cheers everyone (you can see on the photo the small yellowish piece of shell that sticks out)
