Rickets in the Berberskink

Rickets is a disease of the bones, which often appears. Not only Berber skinks, but also other reptiles can suffer from it.
Rickets, also known as Rachitis, is a disorder, which develops through a shortage of calcium, vitamin D3, and Ultraviolet light. The bones become weak and this can results in crooked legs, cartilage that is too soft or a crack in the tail.
