    Ok Ozzy's eyes cleared up yesterday so I have been watching like a hawk because I really wanted to try and catch him shedding to observe it.
    So tonight i check on him around 10:30 and he doesn't even look close so I come back about 11:15 and he is done !
    Nice good shed all in one piece still really wet feeling in a prefect little ball

    How do they do it so fast ???

    I was hoping to find a bowel movement as well but no dice, it's been since mid Feb since he has gone and in the meantime he has had 3 mice
    before that he was going about every 2 weeks.
    Is this normal to go so long???

    Jeez, never thought I'd be worried about a snakes bathroom habits

    Here is something gauranteed to work. Soak him in warm water for about half an hour or so. And watch the magic that is snake poop.

    Life is like a game of poker. You can play each hand to the best of your ability but you are still going to run into a bad beat from time to time. What matters is how you handle it. Do you go on tilt or can you maintain your composure & rebuild your stack?

    Yes I woke up this AM to a gift from Ozzy. You were right Wizill

    Do any of your snakes have a favorite spot where they always poo???
    Ozzy goes to the warm hide to poo and pee or always very close to it.

    Yup -- all mine seem to prefer the warm side, now that you mention it, but then they get as far away from it as they can.

    If it's a good shed, which Ozzy's obviously was, it doesn't take long at all. They'll rub their heads on something to get it started, then slide right out, turning their old skin inside out. (Sorry if I'm stating the obvious here, but I was fascinated when I discovered that.)
