    How is he moving around? Can he climb as usual? Has he eaten? How often do you mkist his cage? How's he doing?

    Oh no, poor guy! Place him in a sauna ASAP to help with that shed. Fill a small tupperware container or deli cup with air holes with damp paper towel and put him in there for 15-20 minutes. That should help with any shed that might just be constricting the toes. It is essential to get that shed off or else he may lose the toes completely. Good luck with your little guy!

    Yes, you'll need to put him in a gecko sauna. It's looking a lot like stuck shed on the bottom of the foot.
    If it's left there, it can cause problems later on, so I'd help him asap.
    How often are you misting your gecko's enclosure? Proper humidity levels will prevent this from happening in the future.
    Gecko sauna:
    Take a deli cup or tupperware with holes and place a paper towel in the bottom. Take room temperature water and mist the whole of the cup very well. Place your gecko in there and leave him in for about 10-15 mins. That should loosen up the shed that is stuck on the bottom of his toes. Take him out and use a damp q-tip to roll against the bottom of his toes to help take the shed that's stuck off.

    ^agreed that there is probably an underlying humidity issue here. without fixing it, this will only happen again.

    good luck with him.
