    Default Shedding question

    I have a hatchling gargoyle, not sure the age. We got it almost 4 months ago. When should we expect it to shed? I had 2 gargoyles a few years ago but they were juveniles when we got them, so this is new territory for me.

    It should have shed already, but they eat their shed and some geckos prefer privacy when they shed, so it probably has already shed.

    Hi if you have had your gargoyle hatching for four months I would have expected him to have shed on multiple occasions by now. In my experience they seem to shed pretty quickly so it maybe your just missing when he/she is shedding. I would estimate that if very young & growing nicely probably every few weeks.

    I haven't noticed the gray hazy color that is normal before they shed. The gecko is still pretty small, grown but not a lot.

    That's normal. Crested gecko are different then gargs, but I've had one of mine for a year and have never seen it shed or know when she was about to. A hatchling garg is going to be pretty small. Unless you're constantly holding/watching your garg, you won't always know when he is about to shed.
