    And some people use shed skins to laminate as art on their fingernails too.

    But just because the Chinese use something as "medicine" doesn't mean it actually works... I remain skeptical for most of their "cures" (though not all).

    Some of the above "uses" are new to me...I wouldn't rush to take any by mouth, that's for sure, but maybe if I ran out of band-aids? Still, you have to wonder
    what germs you're adding to your wound???

    Here I've been "wasting" my snakes' sheds on "meet & greets" with my pets...

    I can see the whole “art” aspect but ingesting it?? I would need to see some case studies on “test subjects” before plopping a chunk of ole Monty’s dead flesh into my pie hole.

    Ohhh this would actually kick up your “meet & greet” sessions to a whole new level.

    You'd think the health services would be constantly advertising for snake skins for research purposes..
