    Thanks!

    Great advice. I owned a bp in my teens(I'm now in my late 20s) and never had an issue with bad sheds, but I recently bought a male ghost bp after years of not owning any snakes and he started shedding about a week ago. I noticed it wasn't coming off the way it should be so I did a quick Google search and came across this forum. So today I tried this out and it helped tremendously I would say 95% of the shed came off. Thanks again and I'm glad I came across this site !

    Re: Bad shed? No problem.

    One of the important parts of the process described mentions wiping it over with a wet hand cloth but I've had great success with dampened , rough textured bath towel . So after the soak , ideally with the container in it's Viv / rub so the water doesn't get cold .... Anyways have the wet , rough textured bath towel and you wrap the snake up in the towel and let the snake continually slither through the towel for a while , applying very gentle pressure with your hands ... if it's head pops out then gently cover it up and continue to let it slither ...

    Generally all the shed skin comes off on the towel but it's a gentle way of doing it . I'm not a fan of the peeling off with your fingers method at all ..

    I know this was posted a while ago but this is very helpful. I bought my snake during a stuck shed. I got some shed ease and that worked for his body but not his neck and head. I will be trying this for the rest of the shed

    This post might be ten years old, but it's still perfectly relevant information. Thanks so much for the pictures and step by step guide. My little girl has shed several times since we have had her with no problems but when we bought her we were informed that she'd had problems in the past with bad sheds so we were very careful around shedding time. Recently i purchased a reptile humidifier so i could more consistently maintain the humidity levels and adjust them when needed. When I noticed she was shedding I turned it up, but I'm guessing I turned it up too far. That coupled with a relatively empty tank (fighting off some very stubborn scale mites so all she had were lightweight plastic hides) resulted in a very patchy incomplete shed. I'll soak her today when it gets a bit warmer but I have a lot of confidence that this will do the trick.
