I've noticed this is a lighter colour than the other side and can't help but think she has maybe knocked it off in the garden ? She's actually fine eating, pooping and drinking well maybe its just where she has shed or maybe where she's dirty everywhere else I dunno :)
And both sides for comparison

It looks perfectly normal to me, just like a newer scale. It will change colour as it ages.

Sometimes they knock them on enclosures and sometimes they just fall off with age, but the new ones are always a bit lighter in colour. Just keep an eye on it to see if there are any other changes that need to be looked at, but it looks fine to me as far as a pic can tell ;)
