All geckos shed their skin at fairly regular intervals, with different species differing in timing and method. When shedding begins, geckos accelerate the process by detaching the loose skin from their body and eating it.

  2. I remember reading that if the shedding is its entirety shows that the animal is in a great health condition ?

    Contrary to the fact that if it’s in pieces it usually shows illness and stress during shedding.

  3. Why does the gecko eat the skin?
    Are there nutrients in it that are precious to the animal in that time?
    Are they getting rid of location evidence to predators?

  4. WTF is up with that persons finger…talons? Are they a vampire? A werewolf just beginning their transformation? Did they just finish using the Palantir to commune with the Dark Lord Sauron?!

  5. My gecko shed his skin last night so his stickiness was restored, so now he thinks he’s Spiderman and keeps climbing on the ceiling and flinging himself at walls

  6. Imagine being that one kid that gets sunburnt real bad and just eats the dry, flakey, and big layers of human pork rinds just to ‘accelerate the healing process’….
