How often do your bearded dragons shed skins?
How does it do it? How long does it take for the entire shedding process? Is it possible the shedding process to be interrupted?
Do they eat before/during shedding?

RE: How often does a bearded dragon shed its skins?
A baby sheds every few weeks, to adults sometimes as little as once a year. It goes in phases. The head, the back/body, the tail, normally both back legs go together and both front legs go together, but not always. Most will eat during the beginning of the shed cycle, and some won't eat, or not as much during the actual shedding. Some will. They are normally a bit more grumpy when they are actually shedding, but it varies animal to animal.

The baby bearded dragons have to shed skins in order to grow bigger. Why the adults have to shed their skins too?

What is the typical time required for a successful shedding?
