    Re: force feeding time??

    I'm going to put one on his new tank when ever the heck I get it done... been ******** busy, water lines still froze this morning even with being wrapped in insulation, but got it running quicker then normal. Also have a co-worker of Cole's staying with us and his 5 month old border collie, so there's way more to clean... chunks of chewed firewood, piss n crap, muddy foot print, etc. dishes etc. PLUS my momma in-law will be living with us 5 days a week for her new job! Fun fun.

    Gave George a nice warm bath today after he 'pee'd' on himself. seemed to perk him up a bit, he still hasn't shed. I was also wondering about a bump I have found on his side... It seems to 'pop' or 'crack' when he moves it... could it be a dislocated rib? I noticed this bump about 2weeks ago and it hasn't changed yet...

    Not sure what it could be. It is something to keep an eye on though.

    That first photo looks like retained shed. Very dry looking.

    Yeah...I think I would get him in a shed box ASAP. I would let him soak in there for a bit and then rub him gently with a washcloth to see if I could get that skin to come off...especially on his face and eyes and around his neck. After that, I would reassess the bump...then we can try to figure that out.

    It wasn't retained shed, although that was my first thought too. Peeked in his cage n was like HOLY CRAP!! Got some warm water n towel ready n took him out, realized he stunk like snake urates. Rubbed him down with the warm wet cloth after a good long soak. It was just PEE. lol His skin still ain't ready to come off.

    He has this habit of putting his head underneath his vent n looking out from underneath himself. So I can see where he would do the dirty on himself. I was VERY thorough in trying to remove his skin... he didn't like it.

    So his skin doesn't look like that anymore? It wasn't dry skin?

    Snake looks to be a healthy weight to me. Force feeding rarely does any good anyway. Often does much harm.

    Agreed. I can't see circumstances where I would force feed, but he looks a good size so I wouldn't be worried about him starving yet.
