    Hi all, we got got a albino and we noticed she had a dint in her tail. She shed last night and it was a good shed expect for a little bit where the dint ends. We bathe her and got it off. But we are worried about the dint in her tail and it looks like there is a blood spot. Any ideas on what to do with it or anything?

    looks to be your average kink, though i don't know much about such.

    Difficult to see clearly but looks more like damage than a kink to me.
    I would say the tail has possibly been trapped somewhere which has led to the damage, currently looks like it is healing but it will take time and will need the sheds to be monitored closely. (If you don't get the sheds off in this area it 'can possibly' & not wanting to make you panic, lead to loss of the tail tip below the damage). Don't expect the scales to look completely normal once it does repair, a little like us having a scar after some skin damage.

    I agree with Paul, don't think its a kink.

    Was the sore there before you bathed her? Could it have come from you assisting the shed?

    Ok fair enough. Keep it dry and if it gets bigger or even changes appearance, get her to a vet.
