Jcp Weird Scabs Under The Chin?

    My carpet python has what look like two small scabs on the underside of her chin, kind of weirdly symmetrical. I initially thought she just cut herself on something (couldn't figure out what though), but they have persisted through a shed cycle. They don't seem to irritate her.

    She's a healthy eater and has not displayed any behavior changes. She has a penchant for stargazing that she has had forever. I've had her for 5 years and she's done that basically the whole time.

    She's in a 36x24x18 AP cage, typically 93-95 at the warmest, 85ish at the cool end.

    Well, if anyone is curious, the vet said it appeared to be minor physical injuries, probably scraped her chin too roughly on something while shedding or got her head stuck briefly and that it should go away in a couple sheds.

    I am relieved because I was worried it was sores or something worse.
