What should I be looking for to see if Moriarty is about to shed? Are there any mood changes? Appetite increase or decrease, sleeping more, bathing more etc?

You may find there appetite may decrease, and they may seem slightly lathargic, also they may seem slightly pale, as for the actual shedding, a bath or a good spray to help them shed easily, they generally shed via head, tail then the legs and last but not least the back and stomach, i'd offer them a locust everyday ut they may not take but ofcourse keep veg available to them all the time and they should be fine ;)

Growth rate, when they are younger they shed more, depending on how well they are developing, as they get older they shed less
