 Leo not eating, swollen hemapena

My Leo stopped eating, and has a bulge behind his anal pores. He doesn’t have a blue spot on his tummy, and I noticed behind those pores, the skin never shed. Could this be blocking his ability to pass pooh?

Sometimes males get a hemipenal prolapse, where their manlihood sticks out and they can’t get it back in. Then it dries up and causes all sorts of trouble. Schedual a vet appointment to identify if this is the problem and, even if it isn’t, get a fix. Until then, soak the leo in a warm solution to keep his package from drying out any worse than it already has.
