    MBK shed has squishy stuff...

    Whenever my MBK sheds, most of the time there's a squishy black spot inside the shed. And, stinks like poop, too. Her actual shed is always perfect, one piece, intact. Absolutely no issues with the animal, shed or otherwise. Just curious on this squishy poop... this normal? Anyone else have this happen with their sheds?

    Happens most of the time. Actually, come to think of it, of the 4 times she's shed since I got her, they've all had it. So, no complaints. I guess its a good thing, then, so the mess is pre-packaged for me.

    Re: MBK shed has squishy stuff...

    Oddly I noticed that the shedded skins of my MBK are always very dark charcoal grey colour !?
    All the other snake skins seem a kind of translucent colour ..
