    Is this normal ?? Eyes were dull but not shedding ?

    So the day since I noticed my bps eyes were dull it has been like 3-4 days now and he's still not shedding, his eyes were not that dull anymore( but the body still is I believe)... How long it is suppose to take once u noticed the dull eyes to he officially finished shed ????? I read on google it said 24-36hours I forgot how long he took to shed last time so I'm a bit confused.

    Yeah , even longer sometimes ... I have Royals / Burmese and Reticulated pythons , Corns , Rat snakes and King snakes and some will take 5 or 6 days to shed after they've got their colour back and their eyes have cleared .

    Just make sure you try and keep the humidity to a decent level and make sure you spray the Viv a few times a day after the eyes clear .

    You'll probably find the skin in a dirty , rolled up mess , usually under one of the hides ..

    PS put some branches in there and your snake WILL climb in the evenings and it the branches help to rub the skin off as well ...

    Just keep your humidity bumped up and he'll shed when he's ready. It can take a few days after the eyes clear.
