Tiny King Tim's underbelly and lack of bands, his winter colors have set in and he is duller than normal. Also for those who don't know, the white spot on his tail is because of missing scales. His first owner didn't keep the humidity right and his tail's shed never came off, had to remove it myself and it wasn't pretty, nor was there much i could do to fix it. Scales do not grow back and it will probably look like that for his entire life sadly. Can't stress enough how animals are not toys and just cause you want one, does not mean you should get one. Do research until you're absolutely sure you can properly care for/work with and afford one and all their needs.
