He's got ring around the tail right now. I'm going to have to make sure it comes off before it turns into a tourniquet. :roll:


Haha, he does! I hate when there is that little ring, Loki has one now...extra baths for him!

While being a member of this forum for a few months I've seen quite a few posts concerned for their dragons that turned out to be shed. While holding Richter tonight, I noticed he is shedding basically all his extremities to various degrees and thought maybe some visuals would help those starting out. Below are some photos of sheds in progress with flash and no flash.

It's worth noting dragons shed in patches, not full body like a snake. This may be small patches, large patches, or even full body pieces at a time.

Foot shed, in patches. Almost completed!

Hand shed, in patches. Just starting

Tail shed, just the end. Just about done

Head shed, no flash on this one because I didn't want to blind him. Shed is complete and shiny, should be popping off any day now.

Here are some older photos of the same dragon, showing how different their sheds can be

I am unsure how helpful this would be to anyone, feel free to add your own shed photos as a resource.

Enjoy the dragons, all!

Our beardie is usually pretty sloppy about the way he sheds on his tail too -- always in patches and never all at once.

Tail and toe sheds need to be watched carefully to make sure that the shedding skin doesn't turn into a tourniquet and cut off the circulation. It helps to keep the skin moist (soak in warm water) so it doesn't get hard and dry.

I love his onesie!
