    She shed!!!

    This morning I didnt have any time to check on my snake (getting ready for school) so when I came home and checked on her guess what I found? HER SKIN!! She hasnt been eating since I got her, do you think she will have interest in food now?

    Should help having that shed off.

    Was it a complete shed?
    Do you see both eye caps and a complete tail shed?

    Make sure it was a clean she like Steve said, but yes. It could help get her eating,

    That was most likely because of the skin becoming more dull as she gets older. When Mama sheds, you can clearly see she's got a base of a 50/50 dark and milk chocolate, and some very dark chocolate spots. A couple months after shedding, you cant see that anymore, unless you look really hard.
