HE IS TURNING PINK!!

I have two savannah monitors, both of which I fed earlier today. One is about a year old, and the other is a big fella who i assume is about 3 or 4 years old. i fed them both raw chicken eggs and sausage links (which i didnt think had and spices in them), and just before i fed them i took the bigger lizard out for a walk, which i do on the nice warm days so he can get natural sun. after feeding them i left them alone for a few hours (they are in different cages), but when i returned, the bigger lizard has a pink rash looking thing all around his face and on his legs, but it doesnt seem tender.... the other lizard is fine.... what is wrong with him and what do i do?!?

Nothing to worry about sounds like you have a healthy, well fed, warm savanna.
Fresh blood with oxygen in it turns skin a healthy pink. death = lack of flowing blood with oxygen in it so skin looks less pink and blood is darker in color and less red (think of how an old scab looks). as you die the blood shunts way from the less important organs like skin to the very important internal ones (like the brain, heart, kidneys) so it will also look pale...also the blood settles because the heart is no longer pumping it and the old deoxygenated blood will sink/settle to the lowest parts of the body, hence blue or mottled areas.
