Adler Gets A Bath

Adler just shed her skin for the first time, which was a huge relief because I had no idea why she seemed to be losing her color (even though I had read about that this would happen – derp), but a day later she still had some skin stuck to her feet, which can be a problem for circulation if the skin builds up. But a little warm water soak cleaned her right up!

    What I love about the shed cycle is that they look so bright and new immediately after the shed. Over time you can see the pattens and colors shift subtly with each shed.

    Once any stuck skin is softened by the warm water you can rub it off with a Q-tip, or, what I did, simply roll the loose skin off gently between my fingers like you would a glove. It isn’t uncommon for the skin to occasionally stick on the toes, it is certainly good that you caught it, but if it happens regularly you might double check to see that the moist hide is warm/cool enough to be comfortable. It is natural for them to move to the moist hide when they feel a shed coming on. If they look milky but chronically avoid the moist hide check the temperature. Moist hides can sometimes run a little too cool for gecko comfort.

    They may also avoid the moist hide if it has been taken over by mold or bacteria. In my experience this sort of thing tends to sneak up on you. The media in the moist hide will be fine for a long time just adding a little water every now and then. Then the hide isn’t popular any more. It might not be obvious. A slightly musty smell, or small dark spots. It can happen overnight if the wee beasty poops in the media.

    A quick cleaning and replacement of the media makes things right again. Inspect the moist hide more often in warm weather or if your lizard tends to walk poop in. Moss is good and the traditional media for a moist hide but vermiculite and Pearlite are usually more resistant to overgrowth, and either can be sterilized by sealing in a closed container and microwaving. Some breeders use plain white paper towels as moist media for delicate babies. They show any overgrowth and are disposable.

    A handy device to have to check temperatures is a small IR non-contact thermometer. There are a few that are about the size of a thumb-drive. They sell for $10-20 and are handy little tools. I’ve used one for fine tuning reptile enclosures, troubleshooting electrical panels, and to tell me when the coffee machine needs de-limeing.

    Alert, active, with a nice plump tail. Your lizard looks healthy and happy. Good job.

    I leave a leave a response each time I like a article on a site or I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion. It is caused by the passion communicated in the article I looked at. And after this article CF Colors v 2.1, Post Formats Admin UI v1.3.1, and Social v2.10 : alexking.org. I was excited enough to drop a thought 😛 I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright. Is it simply me or does it look like some of these remarks come across as if they are written by brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are writing at other sites, I’d like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list every one of your communal sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
