sometimes yes and some times no. i saw a a big burm with nasty burn marks. he shed only twice and now you can nearly see where they where. but there is a change it could get infected.

He did shed yet, but yeah looking better from the last shed, and of corse there is stuck shed cause by scaring... But I have my methods of getting the shed off. I always give him showers to help and once I had to deal with eye caps.. And to be honest, it’s really not that hard!! You just have to be very careful.
