Stuck tail shed?

Postby Finleythebeardie » Thu Mar 21, 2019 6:47 am

Finley shed about a week ago but I didn’t notice his tail shedding at all. I gave him a bath to try and get it off but it didn’t seen to help. I heard it could be bad for circulation. What should I do?

I know beardies shed in stages but he is 5 months old and my first beardie so I’m new at this. I’m just concerned if it’s going to effect his circulation.

I wanna say thinking back to it that tails shed the least out of all the body parts. So it would make sense for it thi take a bit longer. I'd just wait it out. As the tail gets bigger and bigger the skin will break and he'll finish his shed.
You don't want to force skin off that isn't ready to go yet.
