    Default 2 toes stuck together

    I searched and could not really find the answer to my question so I thought I would post. I have a baby Crested (2 grams) and I noticed that 2 of the rear toes are stuck together. They still curl fine and dont look like they have GCD on them like many of the posts say is the issue. Is this an issue? Should I let it takes it course. I dont really like to handle it so much as he/she is really jumpy so I dont think that I can easily use a Q tip to try to get anything off.

    Any suggestions would be great!

    Could be a genetic defect, could be something stuck. Can't really tell without pictures -- but it's hard to get something that small.

    I would put the little one into a sauna. Search here for the proper way to do that. Make sure water is not too warm though!
    After in the sauna you can try the q-tip again. Could be stuck shed or he stepped in some of his CGD.

    One of my little ones has the same problem. In her case, it's stuck shed. Sauna and a Q-tip usually fixes it. I even put a pumice nail file in her tank to let her walk on. I don't know if it helped, but she didn't want to give it back - was always clinging to it.

    I have one that has toes stuck together as well. I dont really see any dry looking skin. Is this a abnormality or just stuck toes?

    Thanks in advance!

    Yeah, it sort of looked like that, only yours looks much more defined so to say. It seems however that whatever was the issue as righted itself and there is no longer any toes stuck together.

    Guess I just get too worried too quickly
