    Hello All! So Freckles is shedding A lot! I keep his humidifier on. I spray his mulch. He was shedding a few weeks ago slightly. I soaked him in the tub and them pulled most of the loose shedding off. Well now he is shedding like crazy and it seems to be in the same spots that already shed. Is that normal? Thanks

    My tegu seemed to shed once a week or so when she was younger. It seemed like she had a quick full shed and she was back at it again in no time. Maybe that is it?

    Shedding will seem practically non-stop for the first year of life because of rapid growth.
