    Unhappy

    I have a new Five month old ball python, he was initially getting grey as of he were beginning to shed, but my boyfriend decided to hold him non-stop as much as he could. Now he's not dull or grey, so this article helps. I am only still concerned, because recenly he's been in his water bowl frequently, especially at night for hours at a time, he's rubbing around the cage off and on, but still has not shed for about two weeks now!

    What are we doing wrong, and how can we help him??

    I think my bp is starting this process, though he seems to be very dry/dehydrated. I can see lots of wrinkles by his neck and he feels very dry/sticky. I've only had him for 2 weeks. I think I might be having a humidity issue at the same time.

    I've rescued my two balls. One adult and one juvenile. They both have shed within days of the rescue and and the juvenile has shed once every month since January. Every time I've handled them. Either to change there moist towel to assist humidity or to check on them, I've never been bit. I believe that they remember your smell and if you handle them gently at there vulnerable times then its proactive to prevent a strike.

    Re: The Shedding Process

    Thank you for this article I am a new BP owner I got mine from a local Petco in the New Orleans area & all of a sudden tonight got a nip & struck at a few times. Marshmallow has been on guard this evening since my wife walked up to the cage & lifted the box hide where Marshmallow was sleeping/chilling. Can anyone tell me what a humid hide is? I have had to make do with a sturdy but proper size box which I cut a opening to because I can't get a proper hide box in my area. I suffer with severe pain due to several auto-immune disorders so I can identify with pain being experienced I like to "hide" too when I am in pain. But so far I don't shed skin
    i can't thank you enough I am very glad I found this forum! Happy 4th of July Antonio

    Re: the shedding process

    Thank you so much my girl is getting ready to shed and I wanted to know how long the cycle was. I panicked at first bcuz she's an aggressive feeder but she stopped and started hiding from me. She always comes out for me. Thank you so much for your article.

    Re: The Shedding Process

    Can anyone tell me what a humid hide is?
    A humid hide is a hide box that can have a moss bedding or other substrate and it is very humid inside mine has 80-95% humidity inside. It is ment for a suplement to the snake's normal cage humidity so that if the snake needs more humidity it need only enter the humid hide.
    http://exoticpets.about.com/od/repti...midityhide.htm this tells you an idea of how to make a homemade humid hide.

    1st time owner with shedding questions.

    So i'm a new owner with a Ball Python and her eyes have gone very opaque, so I assume she is going into shedding. I am supposed to feed her tomorrow to keep on her feeding schedule, but I also know that I am not supposed to feed her during her shed, so should I still feed her tomorrow or wait for her to finish shedding?
