How long does shedding last?

Postby Tasnene » Tue Dec 03, 2019 7:56 am

Hello wonderful people :D my Yeti is still shedding, At least she is eating. I had a lot of good help from this great forum. I would say she has been shedding for about a month. I have been giving her baths and I do not pull anything off, is there any thing else I should do to make this process less irritating for her?

Young ones are growing so quickly they can end one shed and go right into another. The duration of the shed cycles really varies between sheds too. As they get older and stop growing so quickly their sheds become less frequent and often more patchy. I don't usually interfere with sheds aside from providing something rough like bark or carpet for them to rub up against as needed.

That’s a great idea , I see she uses her basking area to scratch herself
