Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in Reptiles and reptile rescue.

Can you tell me where he is house and about it?

Diet?

Supplements?

UVB light, how old, linear tube or compact coil, strength and brands?

State to locate a Herp Vet?

Can you post a picture of the area that is having a problem.
