    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

    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
