    Hi all, am a little worried so any help would be greatly appreciated. I've had my eighteen-month male corn for six months now, and in that time he has shed four times. The first twice he was in his small terrarium. I put damp kitchen role under his hides (kept off the substrate by a bit of...

    Hey there RFUK. I picked up a new addition to the family today, a 2 year old Corn. She's a lovely little thing, but her previous husbandry has obviously done her no good. I don't know quite the extent of the state she is in, poor little thing seemed to be at the top of the stress-meter...

    This is my male leo's tail. Just wondering if this is just a bit of retained shed or something more seroius? Only noticed it on Wednesday when I took him out to get a bit of shed off his head. He usually doesn't need any extra assistance from me when he sheds, and uses his moist hide. Hot...

    My ratsnake has finally shed his skin, but one of his spectacles has been retained. I misted the vivarium pre and post shed. Should I leave it for a while to see if he dislodges it himself? Or should I intervene and take it off for him? He's a rescue, and is still terrified of people, so to...

    My 5 yr old milk snake appears to have retained some shed on his head around a small cut on his nose (I'm not sure how he got this as he was not in my care at the time) I'm not sure if it's just his nose or his whole head as he's very on edge, I've been leaving him in a ventilated box containing...

    Hello, our Mali Uromastyx, Tater, has retained shed on his tail. We recently purchased him from his previous owner who didn't take very good care of him. We've just noticed that his whole tail is slightly off color because it is covered in old shed. What's the best way to go about removing this...

So I got most of the shed off a couple of...

    Right, so as the title suggests, I woke up this morning and my MBK had retained a little bit of skin on her tail. She was curled up in her water bowl, I gave her a quick check but I was late for work so had to dash out. A mate at work told me that she may be in the water simply because the...
