 Shedding

Hi
My baby uromastyx just shed, it was clean except for her head, she still has a little skin on there.
My question is... do I leave it on, or is there anyway to help her shead it? Thaxs for your time.

That sounds like a pretty good shed to me. My baby shed his feet last february, just his feet! Then last summer he shed his head (all but a spot between his eyes) and a patch on his back. Then this month he shed the rest of his back, his head - all but that patch (which looks about to fall off finally) parts of his belly.. and his feet are starting again. All this has gone on while only the first few rows of tail have shed. I suppose if your uro is super tame and likes being handled (which most dont) you can try to help her with a qtip and a bit of mineral oil, very gently.

Thank you so much for your time. She is very tame, she love’s her belly rub. I will try this, again thank you.
