Keep the cage’s humidity up so the skin isn’t as stiff. Leave him alone other than that, so he doesn’t become stressed from being held and whatnot. He should be finished within the day. Mine sheds at night, so right before I go to bed he’s this pale white ghosty-thing, and in the next morning, he’s showing off his beautiful, lovely new scales. ^^
