:Check for hair and carpet fibers. I have a Spect. that lost all but three toes on the front, and has a scare around one side of his body. The original owner did not realize that he had one long hair wraped around his feet and middle. I have seen the same happen to gators that have a fiber filters in their tanks.
Also.. Cyphrus mulch has long, sharp, fiberous, splinters. I used to have problems with my monitors getting splinters stuck in soft skin or cuts between their toes, when the mulch got really dry.
Good luck. I hope this helps.
