I picked up my Mali Uro today, and noticed a stick/hook thing sticking out of one of her(?) femoral pores. I searched around, and people have mentioned "bulges" on the pores, but I couldn't find any mentions of a "stick-like" protrusion. I tried lightly pushing on it, but it seems securely fastened to her thigh. Poking at it doesn't seem to bother her either though.
Unfortunately, my camera's autofocus is broken, so the pictures aren't great, but here's what I could get:
Is this normal? I don't recall having ever seen this on any other Uros that I've had.
Also, if someone could give me a hint as to [her] sex, if possible, it would be appreciated. I've always assumed she's female because of her behavior, but she also has male features like yellow hands.
Two days later, and it's still there. It looks like it's actually gotten a little longer. I tried poking at it again, and it still seems like it's well attached. It still doesn't appear to bother her though.
