    Default Leopard Gecko - Stuck shed on tail??


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello!

    I noticed today that my girl had some discoloration on her tail. It seems to resemble stuck shed or some form of dry, flaky skin. I gave her a lukewarm soak for about 10 minutes and gently stroked her tail with a qtip, however no skin flaked off. I'm worried that if it is stuck shed, the tip of her tail will become necrotic, however I'm not 100% sure if it's stuck shed or what to do about it. I'll attach some photos below. Any advice would be appreciated!

    I don't really see any stuck shed on the tail in the photos. If there is stuck shed, gently stroking with a q-tip won't do anything. Use your fingernails (I can see that you have them!). Think scab removal.
