    Rick, you are a little bit crazy

    I had to read your post two times before I found out what you meant.

If done correctly, the eyes will clear either late tomorrow night or by midday on Monday.

    Seriously, enjoy the shedding process. I hope you get to witness it happening. It's pretty cool, and they're basically on "auto pilot" as long as they're otherwise healthy and it isn't too dry in their enclosure. Best,

    I thought you had to put the glass of water on the TV set while Oral Robers was praying, before dripping it in the cage, Rick!?

    put in an extra water dish as well as increasing the humidity. Your snake will soak and will shed without incident if the humidity is right. Be sure there is a rough rock or dish for him/her to get the shed started on.

    It will be cool to watch but will most likely happen over night. He'll be really hungry afterwards as well.

    Yes, he's a joker our Rick! You've got to admit, it was funny though. Let us know when your snake comes out of that old skin. Keep a close watch to make sure the brille (eye lens) comes away too.

    Re: blind!!!

    can do so far he hasn't shed his skin yet but the eyes cleared up and hes been refusing food for the alstt 2 days so i think its going to happen tonight or tomorrow night.

    (for some reason none of my pets do any thing cool during the day, the spiders molt at night, the snake sheds at night, the squirel only comes by at night.)

    It was a joke.

    Kinda like this... a fellow was on a train in Vermont, and kept tearing up small pieces of white paper and throwing them out the window as the train rolled along.

    A woman seated next to him asked why he was doing this, and he replied, "To keep the elephants away."

    "But there are no elephants in Vermont!" she exclaimed.

    "Yes, effective, isn't it?" He replied.

    Cazador was just saying that no matter what you do, the eyes will clear, a few days will pass, and the snake will shed. Dripping water or not dripping water.
