What you guys are talking about I think is just a thin layer of the scale being scuffed off. In between sheds stuff is growing and dying, the dying part eventually gets shed but tiny pieces can scratch off before hand. It usually is a result from other cage mates (claws, biting, etc.) or cage furniture. Dry conditions increase itís likely hood. Next time anybody breeds their animals check them over (esp the female), you should to a degree notice the same tiny white flecks from the interaction.
