    Question Baby/Juvi Leo, possible stuck shed???


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello! I got a new baby Leo about two months ago (probably about 4-5 months old now), and recently I've noticed some white around his shoulders/top forelegs and toes (though I believe his toes are just naturally white, he's gone through many many sheds and I've seen no signs of it being stuck shed). He recently shed maybe a week ago(?), but I just noticed it today when handling him. Does this seem like stuck shed? It's not peel-y, flakey, or anything. Just seems like normal skin - but I'm not convinced.

    Morph: High color (the seller's title was: High Colored Leopard Gecko (Eublepharis macularius) BABY)
    p.s If it IS stuck shed, or seems like it, what should I do? He doesnt like his belly or back of his stomach being touched.

    I couldn't even venture an opinion without seeing a picture. I do think that it's unlikely that there would be stuck shed on the shoulders that wouldn't pull away easily. See if you can post a picture.

    Update! He's fine now, checked on his shoulders today when he came to get food. The white has gone, I'm assuming it was just stuck shed and he got it off himself.
