... but a piece of her skin is stuck to her abdomen. It's a large piece covering about half the abd. Any suggestion on how/if I should attempt to remove it? Thanks in advance.

Apply a drop of water to the stuck skin. That will soften it up, and it should come off. If not, wet it again, let it soak, then take a Q-tip and gently wipe it off.
BTW, is the stuck skin on the top or the bottom of its abdomen? Cause if its covering the book lungs, it has to come off, quickly..

I have had this happen before.And what I did was take a Q-tip soaked with water and rubbed the abdomen gently and the old exo came off no problem.
good luck
