hi all

i have a adult brazilian white knee, unknown gender but its back area. adermin i think the hair has dropped off basicly and just leaving a pink bald patch

i know they do this in aggression but its not that. its like that part of there exskelton has just fallen off leaving a 1cm bald patch that is growing

does anyone know what i could put it down too?

i feed him once every 2 weeks on a coupl of adult locusts, mist him every week and he has plenty of hiding places, 1/2 the tank has a heat mat

i have had t's most of my life but never experience this before. i would post a photo but camera bust ATM

thanks

steve

Keep him humid, and remove uneaten crickets especially live ones
