Curious.

  1. I have been reading the threads on here and I have posted before and got well never mind everyone has a difference of opinion. But I see people talking about scale rot and a bunch of other stuff I had no idea about. Probably because mine have all been healthy and docile and very happy. Although I had one get loose in my apartment about 6 years ago but came out when he was hungry. I noticed on my snake near his underbelly he has black spots and another individual on here thought his was scale rot I am curious if mine has it and what to do if he does. Please all I would like is advice not to be put down. Thanks in advance.

    Those are freckles. Very cute. Not scale rot!

    If you ever do get an animal with scale rot, the first step would be to go to the vet and see if its a bacterial infection or a fungal infection, then you can treat accordingly. Usually doesn't result in an animal being put down, only in very extreme cases.

    And scale rot is usually the result of a cage floor that is constantly wet.
