Reptiles/lizard complications


QUESTION: For some reason I think one of my lizards have scale damage and my agama has spots underneath him/her I'm not sure if pores because it's a male or female.

ANSWER: If you have a photo or could take a photograph it would be easier to assist you where are the spots on the Agama you are concerned about?

---------- FOLLOW-UP ----------

QUESTION: The spots are on his stomach area but he's still very active and eating's a picture.

Hmmm, you know I have seen this before and while I have yet to find out what it is it's not impacted any lizard I have had it seems to just be a weird discoloration of scales and has no health implications that I have been able to identify as of yet.
