VERY WORRIED Shed looks stuck on tail?


Hatchling Dragon
Hi all.

Nipp has recently shed the top of his tail but the bottom seems to not want to come off. I’m getting concerned it might be constricting him and don’t know what I can do to get it off.

There seems a small dent at the bottom of his tail witch is hard to picture.

Any help would be appreciated.

Try giving baths to and scrub with a soft toothbrush to help get the skin to loosen. You can also try rubbing 100%aloe on it or something called Reptile Shedding Aid.

Thanks for your reply.
Gave him a bath as soon as I saw this and ordered some zoomed repti shedding aid. Seems to have done the trick. Just a tiny bit left to come off on the end.

Thanks for your help.
He seems much happier
