One thing I have done with success is putting the gecko in a sealed plastic container with wet paper towels in the bottom when I notice signs of shedding. I GENTLY heat the container by placing it on the warm side where the warm hide would be until it is nice and steamy in there. I let the gecko stay in there for about 20 minutes, being careful not to let it get too hot in the sealed container. I repeat this as many times as I want until the geckos has shed. If I catch the gecko in the middle of shed I will put it in the container. I think this works a better than warm baths. You can also try moving her humid hide closer to the heat pad so it gets steamier in there. You can even replace the warm hide with the humid hide during shedding.
    Good ideas, Thanks!

    So when do they produce eggs? My leo isn't right now, her belly is soft and there are no pink spots... Is it possible for Leo's to ovulate and not produce eggs?

    Yes, nearly all female geckos ovulate and for the most part, if there is no male fertilization, the "eggs" are just reabsorbed. On rare occasions, whatever you call the thing that's ovulating turns into an (infertile) egg in the absence of male fertilization. Non-breeding females will, for the most part, ovulate for awhile (don't know exactly how long) and then it will be over.
