    One question I thought of; Is it alright to clean the cage while the snake is in shed or should that wait until after it's all finished?

    Re: The Shedding Process

    Hi,

    If the snake is due to shed in a couple of days and the tank isn't too bad I'd be tempted to leave it but otherwise I'd clean as normal.

    Re: The Shedding Process

    Is it okay to handle your snake right after it sheds?

    I believe the skin is sensitive after it sheds. So I don't usually handle them until after 24 hours or so. But I really am not sure :/

    Re: The Shedding Process

    Okay. Just to be on the safe side I won't handle her for a day afterwards. I have tarantulas and I know you're not supposed to handle them after they molt. I wasn't sure if snakes were the same way.
