    Default Found small splotches of blood in humid hide???


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    My 3 year old female leopard gecko shed yesterday. When I checked on her today she had shed everything completely! Usually I have to help with her toe shed. I use paper towels for her humid hide and when I cleaned out her viv today I noticed small patched of possibly dried blood. I examined her all over and I could not see any wounds... In between one of her toes seems a bit raw but not inflamed or red. She's acting normally, she went off food for a few months but is back to eating completely. She even ate yesterday right before her shed. She loves her food. I'm not sure what to do. Theres no visible wounds that I can see and she's acting completely normal today... If anything she's a bit annoyed while I was handling her but I was moving her around to look for any cuts. I even had her open her mouth so I could check that too. Still nothing wrong that I could see.

    Toe and Paper towel Pictures:

    EDIT: The only change I've noticed is that shes lost about 4 grams since June 2nd. She now weighs 63.79 g. She is a bit chunky anyways though.

    Thanks! I'm not too worried but I just thought I'd get a few more opinions.

    Maybe those paper towel spots came from the toe area you've circled? Just keep an eye on that area. Most of the time leos heal well.

    Otherwise you've given her an extremely thorough checkup! Don't worry.
