About 3 weeks ago, I housed two males while I cleaned one of their enclosures (kicking myself). I noticed that they had a scuffle. They both had signs of bite marks on their heads (one more than the other). There was no blood. You could just tell it was a bite mark.
I noticed when I misted their enclosures, water seemed to be absorbed into their skin as it did not "bead-up" or roll off. I figured that their skin was compromised by the previous bites.
Today I noticed that one is back to normal. The other one has smooth patches on his head (where the skin seemed to absorb water) -- I mean smooth. There is no presence of scales/bumbs. These patches break the consistency of its head color as well. I assume lack of scales means lack of pigment...
Will these patches be "filled in" with new scales and color, after his next shed or two?
