Hi, beardie family-i was looking at My Letty whn i had her in the sun-shes shedding but her head & tail areas- well u can see the layers of skin tht she has shed & hasnt which is causing it 2B uneven i guess. My daughter had mentioned cant they over shed. cuz i used so stuff to help her shed-which thn made me a little panicked. so just kinda wondering.. and advice? answers, or thoughts are more than welcome👍

They won't shed to much. shed is in response to change in boby size. Their skin isn't elastic like ours so their only option is to shed. As they reach adult, shed slows down and becomes more patchy, but little ones can be patchy also.

I am new and looking for a teen beardie. I have been doing a lot of research for about 2 years.
I'm new here but not new to dragons or snakes. Over the 7 years. I opened my heart and home to neglected. unwanted dras and snakes, some critical conditions. Then nursing them back to health and their final family home. I regularly help my reptiles vet with emergency appointments and I also provide the care in my little quenteen,
