How can you when your ball python is going to shed and how do you prevent a bad shed!
his skin will turn a whiteish late color and he will get eye caps Just make certain he has Heat! thats a important factor in sheding and whether you go to the pet store you can buy rocks or little logs that the snake can rub aginst to help it shed
You will know. His scales will become whitish and his eyes will have a milky look to them right formerly he sheds. Keep the heat up and the humidity. Provide a large water dish for him to soak within. Be careful handling him at this time as they can get a little grumpy. Sometimes they also may not guzzle right before, so don't get alarmed if this happen, just continue to offer food as you generally would. If you do have a snake that has a bad shed you can attain drops from the pet store that will help when you soak him. Good luck, I'm sure you'll be fine.
Answers: Your snakes eyes will turn a milky bluish color, sometimes more whitish. When the happens it is time to up the humidity to just about 65%. Keep the enclosure at this humidity level until your snake has completed its shed. You snake should hold a water bowl large enough to soak it, this is impressive at all times but especially when shedding. As long as your humidity level is lofty enough, the snake should have no problem shedding.
"Love my lab" said it best! also after the eyes have cleared you can give your snake a tub (not to deep) for ten to twenty mins this will help the rest of the shed that will happen roughly 2-7 days after the eyes have cleared. you can also mist the viv more regularly whilst hes surrounded by shed! hope this helps, good luck with Your snake!
He's going to look dull and somewhat dry and scaly, particularly about the cranium but mostly the eyes will look milky. Make sure he has a tub of water sizeable enough to soak in and that will help.
And look out not to handle him too much right before he sheds his head skin because the shed is going to impair his verbs and he might get confused and attack you
