Shedding baby

Postby Emluvsun » Mon Jan 18, 2021 2:07 pm

I came home and my baby beardy is suddenly shedding , I didn’t know about not handling him and I picked him up and have him some food and gently pulled some of the loose stuff off , poor thing he seems a bit miserable and now I feel terrible after reading how you aren’t supposed to handle and definitely don’t pull at the skin etc...I feel really bad ... I didn’t pull anything that felt remotely attached though, do you think he will be okay? He’s only 3months x

Yes no pulling off the shed -- you can gently mist him in his tank and take a soft baby tooth brush and lighting brush him to loosen the shed --

Thank you, he seems better today and was quite happy in the bath. He hides a lot but he could still just be getting used to the new environment (I’ve only had him a couple of weeks) . But he seems safe and happy and relaxed when I hold him so that’s good - thank you

He should not be hiding --- his appetite might be off but he should be eating active basking and pooping --- please go over the UVB your using and his basking temps and how your taking them? NO stick ons they are inaccurate and NO coil UVB's they are inadequate
