I think you may remember the little Telescope I rescued with the really badly chewed fins.

I came to realize that one wasn't just badly chewed, it had been completely eaten off and some of the scales and skin eaten, too.

I doubt it will /ever/ grow back, but I want to make sure it's healing alright and not getting worse.


He is very active, super at eating, loves to poke about and all around explore. So completely normal aside from this. I just want to be sure it's healing properly and don't have to worry about any infections.

The injury is probably a week or so old. I'm unsure because of it being there when I got him.
