    How do you keep your sheds?

    I've been getting into the fun habit of keeping and collecting my snake sheds! Even using one for Christmas decorations <3

    What fun ways have you been keeping your sheds?










    P.S - The canvas prints are paintings of my snakes Redshepherd did for me!

    I simply rinse them, dry them out, and drape them over my PC. Sadly my PC's broken so I can't show pics. Besides, all the recent sheds keep ripping because Pylox tries her best to get cocopeat in it xD

    I keep the first shed of each of my snakes.

    I toss them in a Tupperware container and label them.

    After that they go in the trash. Although I do have one hanging over a curtain rod in my snake room. I put it there as a joke and it just stayed

    Little snakes - toss them, otherwise I'd get buried in them. If it's from a bigger snake (over 8 feet), intact, and clean I hang it to dry.

    A local reptile store here hangs them over a ceiling lamp for a very cool effect

    Baby snake sheds, LONG gone. But all the nicer large ones (not torn or pooped in, lol) I save for when I do "meet & greet" programs with my snakes...I hand them
    out as souvenirs, kids & even adults love to check them out, especially when they had no idea that snakes shed even their eyes, etc. I'm sure some local school
    teachers (or librarians) would love to have them too, for relevant classes, but if you call to offer them, you might just get invited to bring your snakes too.

    MissterDog, I love your ideas!
