Shedding in Reptiles

Many people are familiar with shedding but usually associate it with dogs and cats. Since reptiles do not have hair, their shedding is quite different.

All reptiles shed their skin as they grow, and they will continue to shed periodically throughout their life. As the new skin forms, a separation occurs between the new skin cells and the old skin cells that migrate outward.
