    Re: Possible bleeding/scale damage during shed

    It's a bioactive enclosure, so going to something sterile would mean moving him to a rub... Not sure if this would be appropriate?
    Yes it is temporary but needed you do not want pieces or substrate, bark etc to get in an open wound, you want to keep it clean and free of debri and the best way to achieve that is paper towel.

    I have a humidity sensor right in the middle (put in after taking this photo) it's at ground height and leo spends about half his time under Cork bark and half basking up high so it's possible that it's less humid up high I guess.
    Is it digital?

    Soak your snake in warm water before a shed. I would also use she'd ease

    Yeah those plants look sharp and uncomfortable. Id move them to another enclosure or just pot them. The suggestion of moving him to a sterile tub is a great idea.

    Shed ease is a waste of money, if PROPER husbandry is provided which it should since proper humidity does not only affect shed nothing else is needed.

    Combine poor/improper husbandry and stress and than it's more than a bad shed than the OP will have to worry about.
