Hi all,
We got a female and a male Leo. According to ad they are meant a year old but with the info we were given they were born on 1/6/2012. Which, obviously, makes them 6 months. The male had shedded 10 times and the female 5 times.
Since we had them (25/11/2012) the male has shed twice and we've not seen the female shed.
Is this right?

Thanks

I am confused. Just because you have not seen the female shed doesn't mean she hasn't. Your leos shedding sounds normal to me.

I've just been told that the info given was wrong. they were born 1/6/2011 and i was asking because thats twice in 3 weeks he's shed but if that's normal then that's fine.

Geckos shed at different rates, but twice in 3 weeks is fine. It can be as common as once or twice a week.

Normally mine shed somewhere around once or twice a month. The rate at which they grow varies, and also seems to happen more often in Juvies since they have a lot more growing to do than an adult.

My male shed a lot more as a Juvie than my female and also grew bigger and quicker which adds up to the extra sheds.

Also sometimes I don't see when my female has actually shed but can tell as the colours are more vibrant from previous days. I can usually tell now when there due and doubly make sure leading upto the shed there moist hides are extra moisty :)

My two approx 3month olds shed every 2-3 weeks.
For one gecko, his last 2 sheds have come exactly 14 days.
For the other gecko, the sheds were almost 1 month apart.
