    Re: The Shedding Process

    ok...your info about shedding really gave me a much greater idea on how it works. it may be the answer to one of my questions. I just got a 6 month old ball python and was wondering why its always in its hyde or just curled up in its little tree. i have had it for 3 days now and it only gets active while i handle it. Then i realized that its in its shedding stage. im not exactly sure what part of the process its in now but its definatly shedding. so that may be the reason why its so lazy? and i didnt know that you were not supposed to hold it when its in this stage. but its really mellow calm when its handled.

    AND i fed it yesterday and it ate fine.

    Im new to having a snake, it really facinates me and i would like to learn more. thanx

    Re: The Shedding Process

    OK, I'm a newbie and first timer at posting on a list like this and a newbie at raising a ball python (actually my sons). Anyway, we got a baby ball python several months ago. He (or she) started shedding about 2+ weeks ago. I've read the articles about the shedding process and am beginning to wonder about him. He still has his skin on him and some pieces have fallen off, but very little. I haven't handled him during this nor attempted to feed him. How much longer should I wait on his shedding before I get concerned? How do I tell if maybe he's having problems with it? I've put a good rough piece of wood for him to rub on to get it off. I don't feel that his environment is a problem. I'll try to get a good picture of him and post it here so you can see his "condition" and give me some calming advice.

    Thanks in advance,

    Brian

    Re: The Shedding Process

    Hi Brian,

    We actually have a good sticky on dealing with problem sheds as well.

    That should help you get him shed free in no time but if it doesn't just post up a thread and we will try and find some more ideas to help.

    Re: The Shedding Process

    Thank you very much daniel for that very informative post. I still have a question. I read on a comment on "YouTube" that after they shed, their skin is sensitive and we should wait a week before handling them. Is that TRUTH OR FICTION??

    Thank you!

    Great article. I'm glad I read this today as my new BP has been hiding away for the past 48 hours and I suspected he might be ready for a shed. The article was a great help. thanks again

    Re: The Shedding Process

    Daniel thanx very much for this great info, i had just got on to ask some questions about the sheding process because my male is just passed the cloudy eye stage so i been keeping a close eye on him, i just noticed him sittin on top of his foam tree bark hide rubbing his nose against it then i noticed him kinda like haveing muscle spasm it freaked me out so i got him out and he was rubbing against my hand like he never had before and pulseing and squeezeing all of which was odd to me so i rushed on here to ask someone if there may be a problem. I them read your post and feel alot more at ease now again thanks for that great info.
