I got a new Curly Tail and I don't like the looks of his tail. He is just a little guy about two inches long more than half the size of my first one I have that is the same type as far as I can tell. He is otherwise a perfect looking lizard with a great lizardality that is even rather friendly. He is real skinny but I am sure he will fatten up like Curley Joe. The end of his tail starting at the base is REAL dark brown and just does not look healthy. Could I get some opinions please.


Thanks

never kept this specie, is a mating thing?
I have seen many damaged tails on IGs etc, usually caused by whipping aginst something hard, a rot sets in.

Sorry no opinions on the tail, but otherwise I'd say he's very cute and that I intend to work the word "lizardality" into my conversation several times over the next week.

Gee, That doesn't sound to good. I hope tails grow back if it is tail rot. I find it hard to imagine that this little tail of his would have enough weight or body mass at his size to do any damage even to himself.

Thanks for the complement bout my little Larry. The first Curly Tail I call Curly Joe and now this new one I call Larry with plans on possibly getting one Moe calling him 'Moe' of course.

He looks really skinny. I hope you don't keep him together with curly joe. I'd take a fecal exam to the vet. Good luck with it.

I was advised to get one or two more curly tails for the purpose of company to perhaps change the behavior of the lizards in general. 're' suggested this would be the way to go and had worked for him. Curly Joe does nothing but spend most of his/her time burried and out of sight while my new addition does just the opposite seeming to be awake and active almost around the clock. He hunts his food in sight of me and travels to the other end of the tank that is the humid and wet side with the growing vegitation.A place I never see CJ go.

He seems to be a completely different lizard and not even as afraid as I thought he might be from day one of him being placed in his new home. 're' said adding other cutly tails did actually change the behavior of the ones he had but I have yet seen Curly Joe do much of anything but get FAT.

I see no signs of trouble both being aware of the other

If you don't know if he's healthy, you risk to introduce diseases to curly joe. One sick lizard can fast become two.

OMG, he's really fat. And thinking that at the beginning you worried that he wouldn't eat.
