    I have a leopard gecko, Arlo. I have had her about 2 months now. She has shed twice since I have had her. I noticed today that her feet are dark in color. Is this a cause for concern? If so, what can I do to help Arlo? Thank you!IMG_20190625_191729_1.jpg

    This looks like normal gecko foot coloring to me. Sometimes they get black speckles on the toes.

    A warm welcome to Geckos Unlimited!

    I can't tell from your photo whether Arlo has any stuck shed on her toes. Does she still have claws on each toe?

    If you think stuck shed may be restricting blood flow to her toes, please choose one of these gecko-friendly methods to help her.

    If there was stuck shed. I would think the toes would appear more white.

    That's accurate when stuck shed is noticed right away. IF stuck shed remains on the toes a while, there's a good chance that shed will constrict blood flow to the toes. That's what causes toes to turn black and die.
