    The only thing I do real fast is look to make sure everything came off ok and there is no stuck shed and leave them alone for 24 hrs. Don't know if it matters or not though, just something I've been doing.

    Thanks. I'm waiting for her shed cycle to end so I can hold her. Right now she has the milky eyes.

    Re: The Shedding Process

    I'm glad I did not post a new thread. I just hope somebody catches these questions.

    Our Royal is getting ready to shed soon. All the classic signs, although she was very laid back when she was out for a bit today.

    I noticed the article did not think feeding was a good idea. If it's early enough in the cycle is it OK to try? If she eats she eats if not is there any harm done by trying?

    Also, we have great humidity levels in the tank. 70-72% on the high end right now and I'm able to keep that fairly constant.

    Is there any need for a shed box? I have the moss and the "shed hide" but if our humidity levels are decent is there a need?

    Thank you,

    Gio

    You can feed during shed, some will eat, some won't. You just have to try and find out for yourself!

    If your humidity is good (which is it) then you don't really need a humid hide. You can put one in if you want, it won't hurt.

    Thanks for the heads up. Something must have gotten broken during the server move. I'll look into that and get those fixed.
