My leopard gecko has only shed once and I got him on May 19th, 2018.

Sometimes he goes pale but nothing happens, he always has wet moss, I give him baths. He seems healthy, there's nothing wrong with him, he's active, eats perfectly fine and has calcium powder in the tank which he eats from time to time. I just want to know what can I do to help him shed because I tried everything that I know of. enter image description here

  • My leopard gecko hasn't she'd ever since I've gotten him which was multiple months ago I check on him at least every other day but I've never even seen him pre shed Jan 10, 2021 at 5:09

Leopard Geckos shed throughout their entire lives, the reason you do not see the shed is because they eat it! Once full grown they shed less regularly (this varies from species to species).

Healthy geckos will have their full shed within 24 hours, it is always a good idea to regularly check their extremities to ensure that there is no remaining shed.

  • I know that they eat. He did finally shed a couple months ago cuz I put him in a warm bath full of moss more frequent and it came off in one peace but yeah I think he the shed less because he's fully grown thank you for responding and for the help , sorry that I'm late didn't know anybody responded Jul 25, 2019 at 14:41

He/she looks to be full grown.

If you give him/her a bath regularly and have moist moss in there and it isn’t shedding it is likely full grown.

Enjoy your gecko!
