Re: bald spots

That doesn't look like any molt I've even seen. Is that a ring of white hair? I've only seen white hair some in with an injury. One area looks almost raw. I'd have a vet check him if I was you. I'll ask the ER team to take a look and post.

Re: UK Breeders,

We have had members in the UK, but I don't remember how they got their flyer. I would think that bringing one into the UK by yourself would be a problem. Don't animals have to be in isolation when brought in? There are European flyers, but I don't know if they are in the pet trade business.

It's often difficult to tell how much is being eaten. Put small amounts of food in bottle caps and sprinkle flour around that area. You will see paw prints if the food is approached.
