Default What is this strange Mark on my Corn

Morning boys and girls,

I've had this corn for a few months and since I got him he has had this strange marking on one of his saddles. He's shed twice for me and grown a fair bit and the mark just grows with him. Anything to be co concerned about? He eats, poops and sheds fine.

Cheers

I can't see anything out of the ordinary, do you mean where it looks like two saddles have merged? That's totally normal, a lot of mine have more than one of those.

Now you've said it! I can see it! I never actually noticed it's where two saddles join.

Rather embarrassed now....

Wish I had read the comments already posted before studying the pics for several minutes. I was expecting a black spot or something.

Nothing to worry about. Guess you could call it the corns birth mark.

I too was trying to figure out what was wrong. But only for about 10 seconds before deciding on seeing what the other comments were :P

Nothing wrong that I can see. So all's good

This is a common sign of the LORD and is documented to happen every few thousand years. A serpent of GOD is sent to us to rid us of all that is evil.

"The LORD sent fiery serpents among the people and they bit the people, so that many people of Israel died"
Numbers 21:6

I believe the age old advice and common cure to all evil is to bathe the animal, so to wash it of its fiery mechanism.

Good Luck, and may GOD have mercy on your soul.

Amen

Looks like a beautiful amelanistic corn to me.

Lovely snake with no problems.
