I think he got too drunk last weekend and got a wing tattoo. Jk interesting tho. Maybe a color mutation?

Has it always been there since you got it?

is it the same on both sides of its body?
That looks weird. at first I though it may be eggs, but wrong color and in the wrong place.

It is on both sides I don't think he had it when we bought him but can't be sure, I'm thinking some sort of parasite hopefully one he can live with or will go over the next few malts, like the idea of a drunken tattoo though!
