As the title says I have just run over the tail of my 16 month old corn.
I was feeding it on the floor and sitting in a office chair with wheels as I looked down the wheel moved and caught the last inch of tail under the wheel :oops: :( , it has gone very red, there was no blood and the skin is not broken, and it immediatley took the second mouse and ate that one as normal, is there any bone in that part of the tail and what should I do? thanks for help.

hes now in his water bowl which i've never seen him do, so i think he may be in some pain.

yeah, it moves after feeding,but i did it while the mouse was half in/out of its mouth, and it generally stays in one place, i'm not making excuses, i should have been watching it, i'm going to buy a plastic box for next feed, lesson learnt.

quick update, i've just had him out quick to check, the tail has gone back to normal shape, it was a bit flat yesterday, the redness has gone down but there is still a bit and he let me touch it today, which yesterday i tried and he almost struck at me and he used it to wrap around my finger.
So hopefully it will be ok and i was really lucky.
Mark67123 it is about 6 inches from the vent and half an inch from the tip of the tail, so i dont think theres any problems there.
Thanks for all the replies.
