I have heard that you shouldn't handle them during a shed cycle as you can mess up the new scales underneath. Plus the snake can get stressed out during the shed cycle as they feel vulnerable and you are handling it. So, I leave mine alone when they are in a shed cycle from the time I see the opaque eyes until a few hours after they actually are done shedding. Just my opinions.
