hey, I had a piece of driftwood that i bought at the petstore in two of my smaller Ts cages, a 2" G. Rosea and a 2" P Scrofa, I noticed that theres some greenish-gray spots on them and I was worried it might be mold so I removed them immediately, here are some pics of the driftwood, do you think it's mold or not?

Yes, that is mold.

The substrate in a G. rosea's enclosure should be bone dry, and therefor mold wouldn't grow on the wood. Let the substrate and wood dry out, and you can put the wood back in.

I am not familiar with P. scrofa to advise on that one :)
