    Default Swollen Hemipenes


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi Guys,

    Brand new here.

    I was feeding my leo and he was getting in my way being excited as usual so I picked him up to move him around and noticed that he had two symmetrical lumps at the base of his tail.

    He is eating slightly less than usual and hasn't passed a stool in around three days.

    His eyes also seem a little watery.

    There is no redness or signs of infection but my and my girlfriend are just a little worried for him?

    Based in the UK btw.

    Any advice or ideas what this may be would help greatly.

    The males get sperm plugs that are at the opening of the hemipenis. Sometimes the plugs build up. In general, if you push on each bulge you would be able to expose the hemipenis. If you can do this, you will probably find a whole lot of waxy white stuff that looks like pus which is sperm plug material. It may be anchored to the hemipenis but if you pull the white stuff out, it will come. Give this a try and if you can't pull it off (pun intended) you may have to get vet help.
