    Hi Guys...

    One of my holdback Pink Tongue Skinks from last season appears to have an issue with the scales on his/her jaw. I only noticed the scales last weekend and it doesn’t appear to effect the other holdback, they are housed together and both are still active and eating normally.

    The scales appear lifted, on both sides of the mouth, however there is no discharge but I haven’t been able to open his mouth to check inside.

    I’ve attached pictures and would appreciate any input into what this may be before taking him off to the vet.

    Edit: Apologies for my horribly dry hands! This time of year is never fun for dermatitis.
