Do you have a hammock in the tank? Are there any other insects in the tank besides roaches? What kind of UVB are you using a coil or a long tube fixture? Please lay off the baths too many dry the scales out--- what are your basking temps and how are you taking them? No stick ons please

Yes there is a hammock. I put some super worms in a dish. I'm using a powersun uva and uvb 160watt. I didn't know about too many baths thank you for that information! He looks very dry like he needs to shed maybe thats what's going on. I recently got a digital gauge and basking is about 112 and the cool side is in the 80s. I plan on getting a bigger tank and a t5 fixture soon

Ok so the MVB using the 160w versions should be around 14-16'' away through a screen. The T 5 I recommend either a Zoo Med 24" fixture or a Arcadia Pro T 5 w/ a 12% bulb and the website www.pangeareptiles.com I usually refer people to is sold out or the Sunblaster Nano Tech 2ft or 24" from the hydrobuilder website SunBlaster NanoTech T5 HO - Fluorescent Fixture with 6400K Lamp
Please take the hammock out and if you want hammock I would get a fleece or a cloth one
www.pamperedbeardies.com or try etsy.com
I am thinking she got that toe snagged in the hammock and she yanked it -- the super worms I would not leave in the tank unless they cant get out - they can bite not often but just a precautionary I have seen one instance of that so just FYI
Wait till the shed becomes dry and crackly you can then bathe her or spray in the tank and take a soft baby toothbrush and gently brush her to get the loose stuff off-
