Thank you soooooooooooo much. This is awesome i recently bought an almost full grown carpet python from an neighbor, previous to my purchase i knew nothing about snakes. When my snake changed color i thought it was dying...thanks to you I know it is just shedding
Also I am having problems getting my snake to eat, I tried feeding it a full grown frozen but i did not thaw it properly and it regurgitated it, then i tried feeding it a live one but the rat bit it twice and the snake did not want it anymore. When it has finished its shed I will try to feed it another frozen(making sure it is properly thawed this time)...do you think a snake that is use to eating live rats can be switched to frozen?....if so do you have any tips on feeding finicky snakes?
It never ceases to amaze me how much I learn reading the stickies. To the OP, thank you. I have only had my bp for a month and it's my first. She has not shed yet, but I see some of the signs that she is entering the process. That is she has become irritable and hides constantly, skin dull, etc... Anyway, I have a couple of questions. Sorry if this has already been asked but I didn't have the time to read all 10 pgs of this post. First, does shedding cause them discomfort like itching, burning, pain, like sunburn symptoms? Second can a bad shed cause fatal problems?

First of all...I don't think anyone could ever say. Snakes are notoriously close-lipped about such matters.
Second...it's conceivable that multiple stuck sheds, encircling the body, left over a very long period of time might eventually cut off enough circulation to cause death. But I've never actually heard of that happening.
