Hello. I currently have 5 baby cresteds. 4 are doing great. The fifth one is having trouble with a shed. I have them in 6x6 containers with 16 small holes. Each has a 1 inch cap of water and a hide. The baby's head has shed but the shed is currently ragged around it's neck and no where else is it even coming loose. it doesn't scratch or itch or bite at the shed. It's been this way for a week and 1/2. 2 days ago i put a peanut butter lid with shallow water into it's enclosure hoping that it would soak itself and that i could increase the humidity. I'm sure the humidity is higher but the baby never went near the water. I mist all of my babies twice a day. Right now i have the baby in a tiny container of water and i'm forcing it to soak. Should i also stress it by trying to pull off what i can of the shed? Should i just continue to force soak it? If so, how many times a day? The baby was born 6/5/08 so it must have shed before this. Why the problems now?
Thank you, melissa.
