Our cherry head has a swollen neck and as you can see from the picture we think he has cut himself.

We also noticed yesterday he was struggling to open one of his eyes but it seems ok today.

Him and his buddy are in a 3ft vivarium with coconut fibre / bark substrate, with moss as a bedding. 20170710_182833.jpg 20170710_181111.jpg I have included pictures of the temps / humidity both at the warm and cold end.

He has just had a 30 min soak, appears to be eating well and pooping ok although he isn't very active.

Any advice? IMG-20170708-WA0001.jpg 20170710_181104.jpg

Who is his "buddy" that is in the enclosure with him?
Send more information after the visit to the vet!

His buddy is another cherry that we got at the same time. They are the same age and I haven't seen any signs of fighting.

I will be getting him to the vet but here in the Manchester uk, there aren't that many around so was just asking for thoughts but will be taking him to the vets.

Good that you are taking him to the vet. Let us know the outcome.
I hope they can be separated. You can't always be watching over them, and the cut on his neck could be a bite from his "buddy".
Really, best to separate them! They will be happier and healthier!
