Hi, This is my friend little thh.

Someone has said her tail doesn't look quite right. Could anyone advise please?

She is eating, basking and generally seems ok.

My juvenile has a tail deformity. I think so long as it doesn't cause any problems with them urinating or defecating, I wouldn't worry too much...... Just keep an eye on it as they reach sexual maturity in case they have any problems whilst mating. x

I'd say it's too young to say for sure at the moment. I wouldn't worry too much. x
