    injury

    I know the eye cap is from a recent shed but is the funny mark behind the eye and injury?

    I don't see anything (I do see the picture). Looks like a temporal scale, right where it should be.

    And are you sure it's not an upcoming shed?

    I'm not sure what you mean by an injury.
    Does look like a shed will be happening soon.

    Thanks for the info. I'm just look at them almost everyday, and started taking pictures.
    So that is before a shed. I think I have seen them after a shed. They look really clean and the contrast between colors is sharper.

    Re: injury

    The eyes go cloudy and stay that way for a few days or about a week. (the cloudy is new skin forming underneath the old) Then the eyes go clear again fairly suddenly and then the shed happens within a day or two. Good idea to keep the humidity high during this time.

    I don't see any injury. Looks like a healthy snake to me.

    Good information, thanks
    Humidity could be a problem because he lives in my yard.
