I have just recently purchased my Nicaraguan Curly Hair sling and today noticed a light patch on their rear. First pic is when I transferred them to a proper enclosure, the second is today. I’ve done some research, but I thought it’d be best to ask here as well. I’m not too sure it’s premolt because when I purchased them there was a shedded molt in the tub. Is anyone able to help me stress less?

It looks to me as though it has just been kicking hairs. If that patch darkens you will know a moult is imminent.

Oh this is so cute! I have a little one of the same species and he's growing like a little weed. I remember him as a tiny baby like this. What a cutie
