varies,
when they are younger, every few weeks or so
when older, just when the skin isn't as good, so monthly?

about every two weeks or so but don't use this as a rule every beardie is different you might have a stubborn one that doesn't shed as often as long as everything is set up right and the beardie is getting everything it needs.

Hehe yeah...as younglings really often...our guy Flash has been shedding about every two weeks at the mo...he's growing at an amazing rate!!

And I'm sure you've probably read - it happens in patches.....generally Flash's head back and front legs will go in one go....then a little while later his back legs and tail will shed...

if you feel your little one is struggling try misting him or giving a warm bath although id recommend leaving him to it ...shedding probs in beardies are very rare


p.s pay close attention around toes for build up but again if viv is set up correct he will be fine
