Ask the Vet: 我的豹紋守宮用了好幾天來脫皮而不是一天，是牠年紀大了還是出甚麼問題了？為甚麼？| My leopard gecko has been taking several days to shed his skin instead of just one. Is he just getting old, or could something be wrong?
Q&A with Dr Pauline Taylor, BVM&S MACVSc
DR. PAULINE SAYS: The normal time for a leopard gecko to shed its skin is about 24 hours, so if yours is taking longer something could definitely be wrong. I’d look very carefully at the temperature & humidity in your terrarium because if it’s too dry you will need to add moisture. Also make sure rocks are available so your gecko can rub against them to help remove dead skin. In addition, ensure he has appropriate nutrition at all times.
