    Hi. My 1 year old sand boa normally is fine at shedding. However, he has only shed a small amount off this time around his neck area, and the rest of the shed on his body looks thick and very dry. Even after giving him a moisturizing bath, this has not moved for over a week. Each of my other...

    Hello there! My name is Claire, I'm 19 years old and approx. 5 months ago I received 2 five-year old male leopard geckos from a friend of a friend who was not caring for them properly. Both geckos were originally sharing the same cage but I separated them when I noticed Theo being aggressive...

    Hi everyone! I would love to get some information on shedding days of baby snakes. I am particularly interested in finding out how many days it takes for different snakes species to have their first shed after hatching / birth (postnatal ecdysis). I would really appreciate any information on...

I have bought this corn snake, Tusk, about a week ago and I notice that on the body of him there are red marks as if a specific scale was coming off. I would attach pictures but I do not know how to.

    My turtle started shedding scutes. I did some research as soon as I got home and saw it. It says if the scutes are whole pieces, and not broken, then it is normal shedding. It also says if the scutes are translucent, its healthy. But it also says you SHOULDN'T see any red or exposed bone or...

    Afternoon Should this worry me and/or any advice to tackle it? Our pythons have just been moved into a bigger vivarium maybe a couple months ago. They seem happy, feeding as normal (for them!), same floor substrate, same decor that they might have rubbed against to aid shedding and few extra...

    I’ve heard and read lots of different advice about looking after a snake during shedding. I’m a bit confused as to what is best. Should I leave my snake alone except to change her water, or should I take her out to give her luke-warm baths and to let her move through damp kitchen role?

    Hi Guys, I purchased a baby Crested Gecko from my local reptile pet shop (i know please don't hate me) around a month and a half ago. I cannot tell the gender of it yet but as default i always refer to it as a male. Basically, for the first few weeks of me owning him it was a dream. He would...

    Hello everybody, December 2017 I saved a baby iguana from a pet store, he had an infected toe, but my vet managed to clear it up, but since December he has shed only once and I am worried that he isn't growing properly, how often should he shed? He has UVB, eats a lot of greens dusted with...

    My spiny flower mantis, marvin, has just tried to shed. He's quite new and this is his first shed with me. I think he must have climbed to the top of the vivarium and during shedding fell from the top. This morning I looked into his vivarium and saw that his back 2 legs on the right side are...

    Hi i recently got a new juvenile boa. He had mites so I treated his cage, gave him a few soaks and put him on newspapers. I didn't want to spray as I didn't want him to inhale any permethrin which has led to very low humidity lvls. I've had him for 40 days now and he's eaten twice. He's coming...

    Hi everyone, Around a week ago I took in a royal python from my brothers friend who couldn't take care of him anymore. I've had him around a week and about the second - third day I got him realised his was in blue. He only have one hide on the hot end and not much else, so I gave him a new rock...

    Hi guys :) I got my first crested gecko yesterday and he’s been doing great so far. When I brought him home I noticed he had some stuck shed on his toes, but I didn’t want to try get it off because I didn’t want to stress him out too much. I know you aren’t supposed to handle cresties for at...

    Hey :D So I got my baby gecko almost 10 days ago- he's just under 4 months old, amazing appetite and just shed I believe the night of the 19th UK timezone. He's done a good job and only has a tiny bit of shed on his left 'ear' - so I'm pretty happy and confident that he's getting what he...
