    No, It is between the two layers of skin.

    Smile question on shedding

    Daniel, Great article and video. I have a question on shedding.. I have a Pastel Ball that I just purchased from a Retile Show on 11/2. He just went through a shed, however it's in pieces and I have read where you should and should not soak. It's been about 4 days - keeping the humidity upwards of 65-75%, temp 88-90, fresh water, damp towel on 3/4 of mesh lid and mist the enclosure several times a day to keep humidity up.

    So.. how long do I leave him to finish his shed or should I help.. If I should help, what's the best way to do this? I tried calling the individual who I purchased the snake from, unfortunately, no response as yet. Wanted to get some additional details on the boy to see if there's any special needs.

    Thanks so much..
    Lois

    PS. Pastel Ball is "Walter"

    Re: The Shedding Process

    I've helped my BP on his very first shed under my care, and his shed came off with just a little bit of rubbing. (He started rubbing his face on my hand and the scales had begun to come off) I kind of think he enjoyed the extra help, all I had to do was sort of roll the skin off, and in the places it stuck I just rubbed it in the direction of his tail. I assume that the patches would be relatively easy to rub off as well, considering they're left overs from the overall shed?

    Hello guys, my snake is in a shed right now (cloudy eyes stage). I last fed him last week and I noticed he went into shed this Wednesday. However, Thursday is his feeding day, but I prefer not to feed him when he is in shedding process. The problem is, I have to leave for 4 days (humidity 60-70% and temperatures will be OK, my brother keeps an eye on that, but he would not feed him). Will he be OK without food for so long (6 months old, no problems with the shedding so far)?
    Thanks for your answers.

    Thankful for this thread and site.

    I was concered about my brothers Spider Ball that ggi have been caring for. Ecelon was pretty active when he arrived. Then he started camping out in his hot side hide for long periods of time without me seeing him at night. So the skin began to look dull and a lil transparent so i started researching and it landed me here. I looked at the pics and read all the captions just as stated on this thread he was preparing to shed. I went to check on him one night as i usually do before bed check his temp and humidity gauges when i peeked into his Temple Ruin head hot side hide his eyes were milky blue. I got excited and texted my bro told him what was going on. After awhile the eyes cleared up so then i let him soak in the tub with some warm water. Couple days later around 3am i was checking his tank and seen something sitting on side of the temple ruin head and there was the shedded skin in a lil ball i thought it was a bad or partial shed until i stretched it out and seen it was one piece. First on time shed Go head Ecelon pronounced (Eshalon) Im estatic he also loves that Temple Ruin head.

    The Shedding Process

    My Oliver is starting to shed, based upon his milky eyes, dull color, slightly pink tummy, and camping out in his hide. The poor guy looks quite miserable.....

    I've only had him for 8 days, and he does have mites (not too bad). Should I wait until after the shed to use the Provent and Reptile Relief on him (It was delivered today)? Perhaps it's best to leave him alone for another day or 2 until he's through the shed process more?

    Thanks in advance for your excellent advice :-)

    Re: The Shedding Process

    I'd probably wait.

    Make sure you follow the instructions on the provent-a-mite as it is powerful stuff.
