So, the other day I left my iggy in his outdoor enclosure, he never have issues with. Today I go to bring him inside for the night and he has like a scab inbetween his nostrils and it seems to be oozing like plasma fluids to prevent infection and I've never had issues with my Iggy so idk what it could be, maybe he hurt himself trying to push against the mesh idk, someone let me know if its nothing severe.

Hello! I'm sorry to hear his scale is peeling off It's rather common unfortunately for iguana's to rub their noses on surfaces they are trying to get through but can't (like glass or a mesh screen). Keep it clean and it should heal in a couple days. If it gets worse, looks infected, or doesn't heal after a week then I would consult a vet about it. They can be pretty pain tolerant sometimes so I would watch him the next few times you put him in the outdoor enclosure to see if you can figure out what he was doing and try to mitigate it. Thanks for posting!
If only I had something to eat. . . . . mmmm pumpkin flowers
