 Brown bruise on my male anole

I recently bought a male lizard from a local pet store. When I got him, he had black spots behind his eyes because he was housed with another male. When I got him home, I placed him with my female and his spots disappeared. For a few days he seemed happy, he was eating and drinking excessively and very energetic. But I started noticing his black spots returning and he became very lethargic. I have my tank on a timed fogger to keep the humidity consistently between 60-80% humidity. I leave a daytime light on for twelve hours and switch it to a red head lamp at night. Nothing has changed between when he was healthy to when he got sick. This brownish bruise-like spot suddenly appeared today on his side and under his one elbow when I came home. I thought he was calcium deficient. This morning, I had dusted the crickets I fed them with calcium, but he doesn’t seem better. I can’t make head around or tails of what is wrong. The female seems perfectly fine in the meanwhile. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Worst case scenario, it could be ranavirus. Look at pics online and see if that looks like what your anole is going through. Other causes, it could be a burn or injury that occurred that you didn’t witness. I’d worry about it if it doesn’t clear up with his next shed. Keep us updated.
