 Mali Uromastyx Shedding Question

I have a question regarding my mali uromastyx. It started shedding its skin about a month ago and it is still in the process of coming off. Is this normal? If not, should we help her by peeling it off, or is there something else we can do to help?

 Mali Uromastyx Shedding Question

My Pogo started on her head two months ago, then around her mouth, under her mouth. Last week it started on her front legs and now her body and hind legs. It’s a slow process and don’t peel. You may hurt them. I was told to put her in a warm bath or mist her.

 Mali Uromastyx Shedding Question

Mine’s been shedding since I bought him. I don’t know if I caught him near the end or the beginning of the shedding cycle, but I have been soaking him pretty much once a week. It seems to help.
