    Hi All

    My clown has something on the side of its mouth. What is it? Should I be worried and what should I do to cure it. Not a great image but as you know very difficult to photograph them.

    Thanks

    I would hazard a guess its an injury or infection due to injury...

    Did you receive him like this or was he fine when you received him?

    No, he was fine when I got him. I check all the LS twice a day, once in the morning and once at night to make sure they are all ok. Noticed this for the first time last night
