    Default One stubborn, tiny piece of shed

    Hi! My little (6-7 gram) crestie has one tiny piece of shed stuck on her head/crests. I've given her a sauna, kept her enclosure extra humid, and tried both a wet q-tip and my finger (gently of course) to try to get it off. It's not bothering her but I feel awful. If anyone has any other ideas or tips on how to do what I've done better please let me know! Thank you

    From everything Iíve heard, if the leftover shed isnít where it could dry and constrict circulation, itís not a huge deal.

    Howís your humidity though? Sounds like most shedding problems for healthy geckos are due to improper humidity. Should be 90+ right after spraying at night, down to 50-60% during the day.

    Now it's on her eyeball as well. Humidity gets to those numbers as well. Maybe I'll try another sauna or something
