    It definitely looks and sounds like a retained shed. Like Steve said a warm humid hide for 30 mins or running under warm (not too warm) water and try to help remove the retained shed, not trying to rip it off yourself though.

    I'm thinking retained shed too, Michelle. Do the shed box like Steve suggested. I have used a shed box with troubled sheds. I let the snakes soak in warm water for about 10-20 minutes...and then I start to try to manually remove the shed. I had a shed that was tight and cutting off breathing on Hermes before...because he couldn't get the shed off around his neck. Sometimes..what I call an "emergency shedectomy" is in order. Good luck and keep us posted please.

    Ok I'll do the shed box. I offered food yesterday and she normally is the first to latch on to food before I shut the lid... she didn't touch any food. Will let you know how the shed box goes.

    she doesn't seem good... really slow and indifferent about being held... She is in the shed box, I folded the towel over her and she didn't even move

    Have you tried to peel the shed off as I described in an earlier post?

    was trying.. I now took the towel out and have her just in water the container is sitting in a sink of warm water to keep her warm. Will be rubbing her down with the towel soon. She doesn't like me touching it.... Looks like she is trying to push the thick belly down. ... I'm about to take more pictures.
