Leopard Gecko May Be Getting Bullied- Need Some Help.

    I have two female leopard geckos which I bought at the same time, they were housed together as babies so I thought they would be ok. They we're fine the first couple of months I had them up until recently. One of my geckos has grown significantly bigger than my other, and I have been noticing the smaller gecko has wounds on its tail. At first I thought it may have been the piece of wood I have in their terrarium so i took it out but I'm still unsure as to whether it was that or the larger gecko trying to assert it's dominance other the smaller one. I'm not sure whether to separate them until the little one gets significantly bigger and reintroduce them. If someone could help me this would be great as all the vets I've talked to don't specialise in reptiles and the one that does is quite far from me. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

    Looks like bites, they should be separated for now at least.
    I see some shed skin on the tail, is the gecko shedding currently or has that been stuck from a previous shed? Stuck shed can cause or complicate issues as well

    I've separated them for now, the skin on the geckos tail is from a cut it has where it broke the skin, it seems to be a fairly fresh cut as it doesn't appear to be as deep as the others as when I peeled the skin back it was a light pink in colour so it hadn't broken the skin as much as the other wounds. I've tried to get the skin of with a wet cotton tip but it's pretty stuck to the wound so I've decided to leave it on as it's causing my gecko pain when I attempt to get it off, I have also made sure to clean the wounds as thoroughly as I can so hopefully the skin attached to the wound will come of on its own.
    Thank you for your help it means a lot to me.
