    A lot happens in 2 years of a snake's life- & he's real handsome too.

    The first few years is the most fun for me seeing a snake grow up into an adult from tiny to a "real" snake. I enjoy the adults too obviously but the fast growth phase is so satisfying. He's looking good!

    Zebby shed. In a total mess because lord forbid I get a nice clean in-one-piece shed from him for once (wasn't for lack of humidity either, it was all off he just tends to always jumble it to a mangled pile).




    He also had a big dump so decided to weigh him. Exactly 1,000 grams. He's finally in the big leagues.

    Very handsome snek! But to be fair, complaining about your snake's shed being a mess...hey, how well could we undress without using hands or feet, & just by sliding against things.

    My colubrids consistently give immaculate one piece sheds though. Maybe it's just his bulkiness and his tendency to fully shed out within a hide instead of splaying it throughout the enclosure (so it gets "run over" repeatedly as he gets it all off).

    It's due to many things. Some snakes have thicker shed skins than others do- & like you said, their techniques vary, as does their body weight & flexibility. There's nothing "wrong" with a shed that tears on abrasive things either, & many of them do that. It's partly luck to get intact sheds.

    Might as well throw in an update here since I already have for the rest. He's been chill as can be, always curious about goings on.





    I have 5x2x2 PVCs on order for him and Hoco, so he'll have more climbing opportunities and more space overall eventually as he always looks cramped while on his nightly forays in his current digs (that 15" height only feels shorter as time goes on).

    The fish view him as an oversized worm and try to peck at him through the glass, so the feeling is mutual.
