Weird molt? No full darkening

Recommended Posts

Hello all.  I've been reading this forum for quite a while but have yet to post until now. 

A female tiger hisser of mine molted about 8 or 9 hours ago and she still hasn't completely darkened.  She did not seem to have issues with the molt in terms of extricating herself from her old exoskeleton.  


I would post a picture but I can't seem to due to file size.


In my experience the returning of color only takes 3 to 4 hours.  


I'm worried for her.

I’m sure she will be fine, although I had a male black tiger hisser that molted and died, he turned the full black color and the next day he was still soft, it could be from just dying but I’m not sure
