    Exclamation Leopard Gecko Shedding, advice needed!


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello! I have a few month old Juvenile leo that i've had since the beginning of April. He is doing really good, eating well, pooping all that. But recently he shed and i've noticed a few stuck pieces and I swear I've tried everything in the book and I cannot get this shed off! There's a small patch on his neck and one over his right front leg. I really don't want him loosing limbs so any advice is appreciated!


    Also to mention, he has never had any issues shedding before and has shed another 3 times previous to this.



    Thanks all!

    Prep for any method you use by first placing your leo in a humidity box for at least several hours. That helps loosen stuck shed. Then use a rolling motion with q-tips.
