Stuck shed???

Postby Notta » Sun Jun 16, 2019 10:51 am

https://ibb.co/VqKX0zD <--- idk how well my camera really picked it up but from the picture you can kind of see the issue. On his nose it looks like theres something caked into his scales a little. Or like theres multiple layers of skin. In real life you can tell that it's less detailed and colored than the rest of his head / body and I'm just wondering if this is normal or if it's a problem, and if it's a problem how can I fix it. (he is around 7 1/2 inches long so his age should be around two months.)

I don't think it's stuck. It looks waxy like a shed is building up so I'd expect it to turn white and break free over the course of the next few weeks (shed time can vary a lot). It doesn't look unusual or harmful at this point.
