Hi! I have a baby leopard gecko and I just noticed this on her back feet and tail. At first I thought there was just calcium on her feet and tried to wipe it off, but it’s stuck. Her tail is what’s really worrying me though. It has sort of a brown scab/band going down her tail with a red spot. Please someone help my baby.

Hmm, keep him set up sterile I think maybe isolate the moss to a small hide.
( I have a rescue gecko in a 6 qt as well and for one hide I am using the 50ct? giant meal worm cup from PetSmart for him.
I would make something size their moist hide
)

also maybe less water or a smaller and shallow water dish

It does appear to be a shedding issue, I would recommend tanking it to a reptile savvy vet.

Until then, clean up its bin, get a proper shedding hide, and get a humidity and temp gauge for its tub. Start doing baths with Zoomed shed ease in warm water 2x a day. Follow instructions on the back of the bottle.
