    In shed again

    My young marcianus is in shed again,he last shed on the 31/5 and is now in clear phase after two day with blue eyes.Is this normal for a snake to shed so regularly or is he shedding regularly enough?

    Let's see, you got Garry on 15/5, shed on 31/5 and in shed phase again.
    Sounds like you are doing well for the little man. Nothing unusual here in my opinion.
    Just a growing young snake.

    He's really coming along great.I also noticed his neck is thickening and he seems to be putting on weight and length [I knew garters grow quick but he takes the biscuit]

    Re: In shed again

    My baby easterns...two months old...shed almost once a week at this point. Everytime I look in the enclosure...I find another shed! I think it's just babies growing rapidly. It's as if they are taking turns...they shed one at a time and as soon as the last one sheds...the first one is getting ready to shed again!

    Sheds are not a very accurate way to measure. They can be long or short of the actual length.

    Yeah, sheds can actually stretch quite far, where do you think the stories of the 40ft Anacondas come from when locals would find their sheds.
