Issues with belly scutes
2 Attachment(s)
My corn is a year and a half ish old and I've had her since she was a week or 2.
She's on aspen bedding, has hides and natural sanitized wood to climb on and a universal rocks background to climb on.
Her last shed was 3 weeks ago and complete (always is) She's never had issues like this before. She does have some stuff peeling off her scales, but it's clear and shiny not like how stuck shed looks.
Looking at the mess she has been making in her bedding over night making tunnels and such, I'm thinking this will get better after her next shed. But wanted to confirm.

Added a link that has better pictures. it seems to be getting worse.

I was told from someone it might be "mechanical" damage. Anyone?

It does look as if she was trying to back up out of something and damaged those scales. Mostly right now I'd check for where the damage might have occurred and remove the offending item and then wait for her to shed provided she's eating well and there's no redness in the area.
