I got one female A. natalesis and I realised that something is wrong with one of her leg.
A friend o' mine already told me that one of his Pt murinus have the same thing on a leg too.
What should I do?
Anyone knows what is this for sure and what should I do?



Thanks

It actually looks like it may just be bleeding, can you get a better shot?

There is nothing you really can do. It's not a parasite. But it does look like the leg might have been injured at some point between molts. Once another molt takes place I doubt you will be able to tell it was there. That's what we will hope for at least.

I highly doubt the leg will be cast off. Only seriously damaged legs are cast off.
