    Hey guys,I have a jungle with weird lumps on his body.He is a yearling caramel het hypo which I only scored a couple of months ago,but he has a couple of indentations that haven't smoothed out even though he has doubled in size. Any ideas ? 20180825_180538-2241x3984.jpg 20180825_180529-2241x3984.jpg

    I had a md with lumps like that and unfortunately after a vet visit he was put down as he was riddled with cancerous tumours . Dont mean to alarm you but i would being going to the vet sooner than later if i was you . My md developed lumps in the space of a month they were not that noticeable at first but seemed to grow rapidly all of a sudden .

    Cancer is not unusual in pythons, but more likely in older animals I would think. I guess it's not impossible, but a visit to the vet is definitely warranted.
