My almost 3 month old sulcata, Thor had a bump show up on his eye this morning. He’s not acting any different, still eating, drinking, all the good stuff :) His home is 85 ambient, basking area is 95-105, humidity is 80-85. Night time doesn’t get below 83. I cut him grass from outside like clovers, weeds, romaine, flukers multicolored pellets twice a week. He soaks everyday for about 20-25 minutes.

Anyone know what this could be? It started as a little piece of skin flaking over his eye yesterday and now this today..any help is appreciate! Thank you! ?

EDIT: I feed him the greens daily, but the pellets twice a week as a treat

I purchased him/her from a breeder here in Louisiana..I’d say we’ve had it a close to two months now.

No I haven’t...I’ve looked him all over...it’s just the one on his eye. It seemed like there was a little piece of skin over the corner of his eye yesterday, but I left it alone thinking he’d shed it or get it off on its own. This morning it was about the same..then this evening was when I noticed the white bump :/

I'm hoping this is something different from the yellow bumps issue we've been seeing a lot of lately. (There's even a subforum on it, in the Tortoise Health section.)

Do you have any other reptiles?

This at least from pics doesn't look like the other yellow bumps. I would recc getting vit looked at though being so close to the eye. Could be a growth or access etc. Could it be one of the bumps its possible. But doesn't look imo like any case I've seen
