    [​IMG] Hello,

    I have a three-year-old, male jungle carpet python. Recently I have noticed a number of lesions/sores along his body. The lesions themselves are dry and I have never noticed pus/blood. Also, he does not react if I touch them. Below are his specs:

    Tank: 36x18x36 Exo Terra

    Heating: 90° basking spot; 75° ambient temperature

    Substrate: mix of Peat Moss, sphagnum moss, and aspen shavings

    Humidity: misted periodically (I understand that there is a great deal of contention around humidity levels for jungle carpets; I use Nick Mutton’s “Jungle Carpet Python: a comprehensive guide recommendations)

    Feeding: previously frozen 130 Gram rats, one rat every one-two weeks, depending on his activity levels

    Handling: primarily for feeding (generally once every 1 to 2 weeks)

    Acquired from: a local breeder, parents in good condition

    Previous health issues: none

    unfortunately the only Vet within reasonable distance that will see snakes has little experience with them. I’m open somebody has seen similar symptoms and knows what the cause may be. Any advice would help. Thanks.
