    Default My leopard gecko is having a major shedding problem


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Ever since I first got my leopard gecko, he can never completely shed his skin all of the way. He always has little bits of skin at the ends of his toes and no matter how much soaking in warm water I give him, it still never totally comes off. Also, when he is shedding i spray one of his hides that has warm heat coming up from under it, assuming that the humidity will help with the shedding. Is there any product I could use to help me with his shedding? What else could be the problem? thank you

    You may need to share more details regarding your setup before anyone will be able to help you with a solution. Do you provide a humid hide for your gecko?

    You need a humid hide with misted moss to aid in shedding. You should have 3 hides : warm, humid, and cool.
