  • Tokay shedding ???

    Hello. I have two juvenile Tokays. Both are about 5 inch .

    How do Tokays shed? At once like Cresties overnight ?
    Or could it last longer like with other reptiles. My boy has a piece of shed on his back. I first recognized loose shed about 12 hours ago.
    Is its okay ?

    I'm not 100% sure but normally animals shed in one go so maybe the humidity is a bit low? You could make them up a little sauna and put then in for 15/20 minutes and see I that helps them to take it off

        After a sauna and Zoomed Shed Aid he or she has lost the bad skin except a little piece just before the tail. But it is moist and oily from the shed aid and i'm sure it will fall of the next days. He or she is brighter blue now...

          Keep an eye on the tail shed. You don't want it constricting the blood flow.

            Of course. The tail has shed. It is just a 2x3 mm piece on the back - not round the tail.

              It is just this tiny piece. (Red encircled).

                Oh, I thought it was on the tail tip. My mistake.

                  Got him out again. The spit where I saw the old she'd was dark. I out him in a critter keeper and sprayed Shed aid on her. After 20 minutes I took her out to look. The black spot looks like insured skin. What do you think ? Did she scratch or rub her skin away. Is it harmful ???
