    Re: Bad shed? No problem.

    I cannot begin to imagine all the snakes and new, worried owners this thread has helped Christie. I often use this thread and the one from Daniel on the shedding process at other forums to explain what's going on and what to do if things go wrong along the way. Absolutely top notch stuff and a wonderful job done here Christie!

    Re: Bad shed? No problem.

    Hi,


    Have you misted the tank to increase the humidity?

    Do you feel the tank was too dry in the first place?

    Has me managed it by now and the panic is over?

    Re: Bad shed? No problem.

    There is no set schedule for young ball pythons to shed. Depending on temps, feeding schedule, and the individual they can shed anywhere from 2 weeks - 3 months ... with the average being once every 4-6 weeks.

    Great help. Although kind of hard when you have a snake that has a bad shed and wants to bit everything.

    Re: Bad shed? No problem.

    I'm going to be using this tonight. My pastel I suppose decided he wants to be lazy and doesn't want to rub his shed off, so it's just sitting on him, waiting to come off.

    Re: Bad shed? No problem.

    If you mean that the shed has been retained for 9 days, then yes.
