 What happened?

We changed her substrate to regular play sand. Made cool little hides under for her, can’t remember off the top of my head who on here gave me the idea, but she LOVES it so thank you! Her tummy scales have changed colors now. I’m not good with descriptions, my girlfriend said something about the rainbow on bad fish ... I don’t cook either ... Or eat much fish ... Anyway, I was wondering if she was rubbed raw? Just polished? Did it get under her scales? She seems to love the sand ...

sand is optional but hides are the key to a happy platey or any other lizard.makes them feel more secure,hence the new colors.thats his way of smiling.

Anyone got pics of their plated’s belly? I’d feel better if I had a comparison ... I mean, I figure the brighter parts are just being happier & healthier (going from a 5 gallon to a 40 makes a girl real happy) ... But should the belly scales be practically see through? They weren’t when we got her ...
