    Hi, does anyone have any experience getting stuck shed off the bottom jaw of a snake? My young female ball python (who I got only a couple of weeks ago) was in shed when I received her, and due to the quarantine setup, had a not so great shed. I was using kitchen roll as the substrate and I...

    We've had this little corn snake for about 2 months now. His first shed with us went really badly, he got it off from his head to the first third of his body, so no eye cap issues. I was going to try a bath but he seemed super stressed out and that scared me. We put the bath on the warm end of...

    Hello! Apologies in advance, this is a long one. I'm hoping for some guidance on my sweet leopard gecko's care. Her name is Juniper (my exotic vet was 99% sure she's female but we went by looks only, don't know if that will help), and she was my foster turned "unadoptable" adoption. For...

    Hi I just recently got a new Ball Python at a pet store(I know not the best place to get one). He is very young and I made sure to check him for mites and anything that would seem unhealthy before I bought him. And nothing was wrong the day I brought him home (12/23/18), however two days after I...

    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...

    I’ve raised my leopard gecko since she was 4 months old, she is now a year and one month old now. Her name is mushu and she has always had problems taking off her skin, on her toes which I know it’s natural for them to not be able to get it off but the worst spot is her head. She cannot ever...

    I've had my crestie for about a month now and about two days ago he escaped and left his tail behind. I was fine with that, I heard only about 1/10 keep them and he was doing fine that night but the next night he had what i believed to be stuck shed and wasnt using the affected foot because of...

    Hello! I'm having a problem with my new ball python. I got her a month ago and she shed two weeks after. She shed, but she shed in pieces, (That was my fault, I kept her humidity 50-60 {Should've kept it at 65-70% :S }) and she shed everywhere else, except on her head. I've been able to peel a...

    Hi guys, so I'm a new owner to a crestie, and since I've had him the end of his tail (approx. 1.5cm) is quite black and does look as though it is dying. I've read various posts and asked several people for advice, and I'm getting a variety of different answers. I have done 2 saunas and have...

    My female boa shed sometime last week and 3 days ago noticed she has some stuck in and around her vent, I don't want to pull it incase I hurt her, most of her shed was complete besides this tiny area. I've misted her rub until its wet through and today, its still not come off. I doubt she'll...

He shed on Wednesday night so I checked him all over yesterday to make sure everything was ok and I spotted about half a centimetre of stuck shed. I've soaked it four times between...

    Hi guys, i just purchased this Crested Gecko from Pets At Home today (My local one is one of quite a high standard and normally have good morphs).

    Last night i noticed that my ATB had some stuck shed on his tail end so I did the usual, Nice soak in a warm bath and let him wriggle round my fingers till the shed came off, Most of it did but some stayed on his tail. Should I bathe him again tonight or just leave him with a higher humidity?
