 Finally!!!

Okay, no pics yet, but Lacey just had her first shed last night. She was born three weeks ago, and she was my pick of the litter. I just don’t understand why it took so long for her to shed. Any ideas?

Housed in 12 qt tub on newspaper - two hides and a water dish - heated w/ 3" flexwatt
Warm temp - 94F
Cool Temp - 82F
Humidity - 58%

Id bring those temps down a few degrees. 94 is awfully warm, should be more like 78 cool side and 88 warm side.

Humidity looks fine. That could be bumped up mabey a smidge by using slightly damp paper towels...but Meh...theres certainly nothing wrong with newspaper and 58% is in the good range.

Everything else sounds perfect too. Might be shes just a late bloomer.

Has she eaten for you yet, or were you waiting for her first shed?

I was waiting for first shed before I fed her. I’ll probably thaw a fuzzy tonight to see how she does.
