    My leopard gecko of three years has recently stopped eating shortly after shedding; she normally does perfectly fine with shedding but we had recently moved her into our living room so she wasn’t isolated in our bedroom. I had noticed she was having trouble shedding around her head so I had...

    I've had my corn snake for four years now and he's never had any problems with shedding. Always off in one piece and except one time always quickly. 1-2 weeks ago he went blue, so as normal I stopped holding him so much and didn't feed him, and four days ago he cleared up but he still hasn't...

    I got a royal python two weeks ago and the previous owner said he is just after shedding. After yesterday's feed he has shed again. Is this something to be worried about?

    Okay so 2 things: 1. My leopard gecko has had a few problems shedding in the past and sadly, as a result, has lost the tips of a few toes. To try to avoid this I put him in an empty bug tub with wet kitchen paper in it, but had read that it was unwise to try to help pull the excess shed of...

    I'm after a little advice. My 9wk old crestie hatchling is having real problems shedding. I've tried the sauna technique, but never had much joy.

    Hi people, just popping in to say that my milk is having a bit of a tough time shedding. He's not been a very good shedder since we got him, but he was getting better. However, this is his first shed in his new faunarium and I was thinking that this may be the problem. Should I put him in a...
