    Albino snakes can throw you off the first time or two when they shed. After that it becomes more obvious.

    Re: Always wanted an Albino

    Yeah, I agree with EL-Ziggy. It can take some time to figure out the albinos, especially if you haven't been keeping snakes, or especially albinos for a long time. If I recall, you are relatively new to both, especially the albino scene, correct?

    As long as humidity has been good, he should have a great shed and I wouldn't sweat it. The only time to really worry is if humidity is off/low. I am really meticulous about raising humidity in shed for everyone, even my corn snakes, who probably don't need it. So I tend to mist when I know one of my snakes is going to shed and after their eyes clear.

    BP: Humidity stays 55-65% normally (depending on summer or winter) but I up to 70-75% when in shed.

    Boas: Humidity stays 60-70% normally (again, depending on season) but I up to 75-80% when in shed.

    Corns: Humidity stays at basically whatever the room is, so anywhere from 35-40% to 60%, depending on season, but I up to 60%-65% (not more) when in shed.

    Carpet Python: He has yet to shed with me, but he stays about 55-65% normal, so I figure 70-75% in shed.

    Anyway, I digressed. All of the above is overkill, but that's how I am. I say meticulous, others say obsessive. Take your pick. The higher humidity can only help and cannot hurt, especially a boa, and especially for a few days.

    However, if humidity is where it needs to be, he should shed great every time.

    Let us know how it turns out!

    Good luck.

    P.S. I cannot wait to see him after his shed.

    Yes it's definitely alot harder to tell on an albino, I noticed the skin on the jaw goes baggy too, you will start to notice all the little signs soon

    Yeah new to the whole snake keeping scene. I think as he gets near his next shed Iíll pay more attention. His cage was just cleaned out and new substrate so the Humidity was little higher from spraying during resetup. Next time through Iím going to really pay close attention. I would have kicked up the humidity some.
    Any ways all is good it came off in one piece. He is fat and happy now.
