bleeding while shedding

my leopard gecko bled last time he shed! so this means i need to raise the humidity to make it easier for him to get the skin off?

Bleeding is unusual ... you didn't try to 'help' him shed by taking the skin off, did you?

This time around I would definitely monitor the humidity closely. Also, make sure all your other husbandry is on point as well -- diet, temps., etc. All of these things affect how well a herp will be able to shed.

yes i mist his hide space with water pretty often. and he always has freash water to drink. the shed again not long ago, and there is no blood this time. he sheds every month or even more.
