As long as the temps are still stable in her viv its probably just down to her starting her shed. They often darken as they do it. Just keep an eye on her over the next couple of days to monitor her behaviour. You may find she'll get a bit more lethargic or want to hide more but this is not always the case and their behaviour can often change from one shed to the next

Hope this makes you feel better

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,
