I recently bought a very yound White's (1 1/4 inch) and he has a bump on his back about the size of his eye. It's oval shaped, vertically orientated in the middle of his back. It looks very much like a blister except there is NO discoloration of any kind. It is semi-hard to the touch but if you move the skin around the bump it moves as well. Therefore it's not muscular... I don't think. He had the bump when I got him only a few days ago, but it's been so difficult finding a store near me that sells them --and he was so charming I got him anyway. Also, I had Whites in college, but I don't remember them being SO inactive. People on this board are posting, saying their whites are "active." What exactly do you mean? What do they do? Mine sits in the same place till I come back and move him. He looks healthy otherwise and seems to be eating. Any ideas?
