Default P. Cinereus tail growing??

Hi,

In the last week or so I noticed that the tail tip on one of my Cinereuses was looking different than usual. The little guy is so small and shy of daylight that I wasn't able to get a good look at his tail until I managed to take some macro shots of him yesterday. In the pictures, it looks as though the tail it growing a new tip. (Perhaps he was injured at some point? His tail has always been rounded at the end since I got him and I assumed this was normal.) Can anyone confirm if that is what appears to be happening? The new growth is the area that lacks pigmentation around the tail tip.

That┤s definitely what it is. One of my P.glutinosus also had exactly the same happen to him, and now you wouldn┤t notice.
