    Hopefully Bluebell just injured her leg or foot and it will get better on it's own. Just check for swelling.

    Bluebell's scales on his legs are starting to rip off... Should I be worried??? Tell me what ripping scales means, or if i should worry about them??? Until someone answers, I am going to worry!:(

    Is his leg/foot a differet color than normal? Are the scales raised or just missing?

    If his foot looks very red it may be frost bite. If he is missing scales does it look like it may have been caught in something and possibly injured trying to free the leg?

    They are just starting to come off..... I don't know if frostbite would be the cause of scales starting to fall off??? We surely don't have ANYTHING he could get caught on!:( I am worried though.... What does scales starting to come off even mean???
