Removing Dead Skin
Home > Library
Most of the time your lizard will not have any trouble
shedding their old, or dead, skin. Rubbing against rough
surfaces and pulling skin off with their mouths usually
work very well. However, in some cases, you may need
to assist your lizards with this.
Remaining dead skin can be hazardous to the health
of your lizard, as it causes skin
In most cases, skin remains at the ends of the lizards
toes. It most often happens from improper humidity,
but can also be due to lack of proper nutrition.
Make sure the humidity levels are correct, and even
raise them a bit by adding a water dish to the habitat,
or by spraying more frequently. If this does not help,
soak the feet (or wherever the dead skin is) in luke
warm water. This will loosen the skin and allow you
to remove it.
