Default Leopard gecko is looking dull

I got 2 baby leopard geckos on thursday, having had my viv setup for past week getting temperatures right.

When i got up today one of the babies was really dull looking.

I thought it may just be shedding but last night the gecko was still nice and bright and all of a sudden today its really dull.

anybody tell me if this is normal for shedding or should i be worried about the gecko being stressed?

Thanks

I'd say shedding, I have one who seems very dull for about 2-3 days before, but the others show no sign at all.

Thanks for the quick reply,

My initial though was that it would be shedding as the other one seems perfectly bright.

but was looking for reassurance from people on here.

Thanks again

A few of my leos go really dull on a regular basis - nothing to do with shedding or owt like that. Their colours go from being bright yellow to an almost dull brown. TBH don`t know why it happens but they`ve done it for years with no problems if that helps???
