My Gecko shed today, it was weird because it was so sudden, it literally happened over night, but anyways all of her skin has shed except her toes and Ive read so much about Geckos toes falling off because their toes didnt shed. I really do not want this to happen and I can tell shes having a little bit of trouble already :/ Im probably just being paranoid. But is there anything to know in advance to help her little toes?
Thank you :)

After she sheds, give her a day or two to get the shed off her toes on her own (nothing bad will happen in a day or 2). If she still has shed, soak her in about 1/2" warm water (the sink will do) for a minute or so. This will soak and loosen the shed. Then, using your finger nails gently, pull the shed off the toes. You won't harm the toes, don't worry.
