Decent size dark spot on head

Postby Jessluvsdragons » Thu Apr 18, 2019 10:24 am

What is this?

He did a full body shed on Monday two days after I brought him home. Shed his beard and face, but I don't remember seeing the top of his head shed. I have pics of it in my intro thread but I don't know how to link them if anyone needs to see.

Is this what retained shed looks like? Ragnar let me touch it. Doesn't seem to be in any pain. It feels rough and dry to the touch.

He only ate two crickets this morning, but I put them on his salad so he may not like that. He's had two poops today and has been active.

Thoughts? Recommendations?

Looks like some leftover shed that has yet to come off

Ok thanks. I was freaking out a little. Does the soak/toothbrush make it come off faster, or will it just fall off on its own?

It will fall off on its own but if she starts scratching on things w/ her head its itching her thats when I would put her in a warm bath w/ a soft tooth brush and brush her ---
