I have two leos, a midnight blizzard and a common. They were both bought from the same store. The common is about 9 months old and the midnight blizzard is 2 months old. Today, the blizzard shed its skin with no problems, but my common has never shed the entire time I've had her. Her skin will go white/dull, but she never begins the shedding process. Her skin goes back to its normal coloring. Is it normal or healthy for my leopard gecko to never fully shed her skin?
This is a pretty common question, and you may not believe the answer, but your common is shedding without you noticing. When my 20+ year old gecko was young, I would never, ever catch him shedding. I would see him go gray, then back to normal, then BAM! He would be brighter for a day or two and go back to his normal yellow. If there is no skin being retained, as in there are visible layers of skin, and your gecko is eating/behaving normally, I'd guess that you are missing the shedding process.
