    Re: Bad shed? No problem.

    i leave a container in my bp's cage where she can go in with an inch of water. i have noticed when she is ready to shed she goes in is this a bad thing to have to offer all the time?

    How are you measuring your humidity levels? If you get that humidity to a consistent 50+% and 60-65% during a shed cycle she shouldn't need a container to soak in.

    Yeah, I had to do that last week and I saw the 8ball guys had a video on it and it worked great.

    Re: Bad shed? No problem.

    I just want to post t say a big thank you for the informative post. My Normal female has always been very good with her shed but this time she seemed to have difficulty. Having never had to soak her before i didn't really know how long i should do it for or anything so - thank you for the pics etc - she is now back to her brilliant glowing self!

    Re: Bad shed? No problem.

    i just rescued a ball python from a "friend" of mine who didn't know what she was doing and kind of got the snake dumped on her. i'm pretty sure the bad shed started weeks ago and the snake still has the majority of it's skin on the top attached.

    this tutorial will definately prove very helpful to me. i will let everyone kno how it goes.

    thanks again, lovely snake u have there.

    and PS, i've heard it's good to have a container of water available for the snake to be able to soak in at its leisure? is this true?

    Re: Bad shed? No problem.

    Excellent tutorial...I just finished soaking and helping Commodus, I let her soak for abour 30-45 mins, then kept her in the water and used my hand to get her old skin off, even let me touch her head...now she's bright and shiny...

    Thanx

    Re: Bad shed? No problem.

    I have been having this problem with my BP for the last few sheds and i think its due to the the Humidity being to low...how can i keep humidity up to have a good shed?
