I think that sometimes the skin can tear as it comes off and this makes it more difficult for it to come off in one piece, even if conditions are perfect.

Another lesson I've learned since writing this is to check and triple check for retained spectacles (eye caps). It is a TREMENDOUS lot of trouble to deal with a retained spectacle if you don't catch it immediately. If you can't clearly see both spectacles in the shed, make a very careful examination of the snake's eyes.
