My poor Lupin got sore bits when he was nurtured.
He had two prongs that were stuck out and from the picture you can see he was very sore.
I hadn't been picking him up much for fear of pulling on his new tummy/ stitches.
When I found this though it looked like it had become dry, hence it sticking out.
Got some luke warm water and a cotton bud and cleaned all around it and moved it gently back into place.
Never had any problems since, but was wondering if anyone had seen this before?

The two prongs at the tip are the hooks that each male has to help him get the job done before a girl is moving off again. Nothing to worry about!

Oh my days!
It was just all stuck out at the end and dry, so I cleaned it and tucked it back in.
