Re: BRB Losing Scales?

It's definitely not like that first link, he shed a couple weeks ago, and the scales are flaky-looking in person. Which may just be the rainbow sheen because they don't look flaky in the pictures. In the photos it looks like all color has drained away.

I don't think it's scale rot either, it's on his side and there's no redness or blisters, and although I keep his bedding damp it's not wet and is allowed to dry out in cycles. If anybody else thinks that it could be fungal I could certainly get a test done.

I just don't want to take him to the vet unnecessarily because of his weakness, I don't want to risk his life by overstressing him unless it's absolutely necessary.
