Can I nurture and pedal my snake when he is shedding?
I feed my snake once every 7-8 days, but since i got him a month ago this is the first time he is shedding, the 7 day dupe is comming up tommorrow and I dont want him to get hungry, also i have picked him up since last wednesday and I dont want me to become untame from shortage of picking up. so would i want till hes dont shedding to feed and handle him or is he fine to be handled?
I wouldn't. Shedding requires a lot of energy to total. I would wait until he is done shedding and then feed after once all is digested you can handle. He won't starve. Some ball pythons own been known to go for 24 months lacking food. It wasn't healthy but they didn't starve.
Also, make sure that he completely sheds as if he does not he could get hold of scale rot. If he does not, spray his tail with luke warm dampen and peel away the rest of the shedding area. Keeping the cistern humid is good for when he is shedding and make sure he have enough rough things to rub up against
Feed him, but I wouldn't handle him until he's done shedding.. Snakes are very aggresive when they're shedding their skin. Once it's done next to that, then definitely you can handle it again.
