    Any elses' BCI take like day long soaks in their waterbowls? I noticed it yesterday afternoon about 4pm that Sprocket was soakin in her bowl. And when I got home at 2am she was still in the bowl and hadn't appeared to move anywhere. Its now 5:40pm and she's still in the waterbowl. Aout 98% of her is submerged except teh very top of her back and her nose.

    Any ideas whats up? Her temps are mid 80's and the tanks at 65% humidity.

    She could very easily have mites, have you checked her over for them? She could also be getting ready to shed. Otherwise, some snakes just especially like to soak for no apparent reason...

    And, about the temps, what exactly do you mean by "mid-80's"? What are the hot and cool spots?

    87 hot and 83 cool. She came out of the tub a lil bit ago so I got her out. Her belly is pink and her eyes are starting to cloud over so she's in shed mode.

    Under tank heater?

    She has had two horrible sheds in the last month and a half. Her last was about 1 1/2 to 2 weeks ago. But Sprocket's gotten bigger from the time I was playin with getting her till now. Guess she's just in a growth spurt. BTW she's back in the water bowl now lol

    Water Fall?

    Stress can induce sheds, too. Going from a stressful petstore environment to a better, although new, environment, could very well induce a shed.

    Well tonight her belly isn't as pink as it was last night but abuot 1/2" on each side of her bottom scales is really light.. Having never had a snake in shed before this is a rather interesting experience I can also tell she's gotta leave me a poo tonight cause her tail went form long and slender to long and stumpy then slender lol. I hope she does it before i go to work tommorow evening or else I'm gonna walk into a REALLY smelly room when i get home.
