Fresh Skin!

All of the adult tuatara shed their skin at this time of the year, and we look ever so gorgeous after the old skin comes off. Our nice, new and fresh skin has much more colour than last seasons! Sometimes we have trouble getting the old skin off, Lindsay helps us by taking us into the laboratory, putting us in water and magically our skin just falls off! What a relief, if we can’t get our old skin off it is like walking or should I say, sitting around in a wetsuit. It is very hard to move!
