What to do with sheded skin?

Postby beardieburrito20 » Tue Jan 22, 2019 6:25 pm

So I got a bearded dragon and I love him! And I just dealt with my first shedding experience. I did my research before getting him so shedding was really easy. But, he just today shed all his skin off his back and it’s in his enclosure in one big chunk. So my question is do I take it out? Because I once had a tarantula and you were supposed to leave the skin there.

They will often eat the skin they've shed if they are hungry or need the extra protein.

I usually leave it be and remove (to put with the compostable rubbish only when the tank needs a clean.
