    Normal for shed to take this long?

    Hi! Itís me again first time boa owner worrier

    So my little leopard boas eyes went blue about 10 days ago. Which explained why she had been soaking so much. They turned dark again maybe 4 days ago. Been monitoring her and checking her tank but she hasnít shed yet. She also hasnít been soaking instead sheís been hanging out primarily in her cold hide.

    Is is it normal for the shed to take this long? With my BP he usually shed 1-2 days after eyes turning black again. And in general his blue phase doesnít take this long.

    Her humidity had had been good between 65-75% and ambient temps around 76-77 degrees with her under tank heater set around 88 (but she never hangs out there)

    anyhow, would love to hear some input on normal boa shedding cycles!

    Sounds normal too me, can be two weeks from going blue sometimes till the end shed or sometimes over and done in a week, all snakes are so different
    Won't be long now. Till you see the true colours of your new boa
