Does he look okay? He's been having these long sheds some of them coming off easily and other parts of his shed are taking awhile.

Thanks!

Do you mean just the darker color on the top of the scales along his nose? That looks normal to me - just regular scale coloring.

Yes the darker color on top of the scales along his nose. Just wanted to make sure it wasn’t retained shed or something.

Nah just natural coloring. Darwin has scales that look like that too.

Looks like perfectly normal pigmentation to me. Loki and Daisy have darker scales on their noses like that. It's perfectly normal. :)
