    Question i dont know what this is and i cant find any information about it anywhere

    My bearded dragon Boris has a blue mark on his back and it seems to be getting bigger. The mark is softer than any of his other scales and i'm just a little worried about what it might be and since i couldn't find anything about it on the internet i don't know how to help him.

    Hi Rourke - welcome to the forums. Can you post a pic of Boris , a close up of the mark and a pic of his setup.

    Could it be a burn, they can look blue - how close to the heat source can he get?

    he cant get very close to it, his heat lamp is about 30 or 40 cm away from his basking spot

    he used to have a heat lamp that was a lot more focused for some reason and i think that could have burned him

    Are you able to get the pics and post them here? Our experienced members could probably help if they can see it.
