Came home from work the other day to Alpha in mid shed and noticed on the back of his neck a patch of dull scales... all shed came away good and looked normal.... He doesn't look saw or flinch if I touch it but there is a definite difference and it's never happened before.... All info or suggestions appreciated ?

No theres no Liquid Underneath..... I'm also uncertain if it was linked to shed or just coincidence.....He does seams a bit quieter in himself but although I know colombians do not hibernate put it down to the time of the year as hes being like it around a month so don't think this is linked.

Dry scales rub some coconut oil on it should fix itself on the next shed. Seen it it mostly in snakes though

Thanks Zyn ..... Would you be hoping it clears up with coconut oil and only taking to vets if worsens??

I think it’s just slightly rough scales from his shed id just wait on the vet and see how it looks after the next shed unless it worsens

That was my thoughts too seen as it doesn't seam to affect him or look saw/infectious..... TY
