Face Shed

Postby Reptilelady » Tue Apr 24, 2018 10:49 am

Hello everyone,
My beardie is clearly getting ready to shed on his face and noticed he must of rubbed his face on something. It's near his eyelid so wanted to make sure his scales are okay and will clear up after the shed.

Yeah that should sort itself out after the shed is done. Face sheds can be tough sometimes!

Yeah, he was having some hard time getting it off so I use the zoomed shedding aid, seems to work really well for him. He has been sooo tired though.

Also, he's been keeping his mouth slightly open, probably due to the nostril shed? I don't hear any popping noises or mucus plus in his terrarium, it's pretty dry humid around 10-12% while the temps are around 80s- to 90s.
