Lila was bred by Supernova Reptiles, and came to me through Waldo on this site. Thank you!

I believe it was you that commented on my post about first time feeding and an incomplete shed.
I got my snake about a week ago, and his scales aren't as bad as the ones in the pics, but they are kinda flakey. Thanks for the advice, and your "photo shoot" pics are so cute. I'm going to give my little guy some time to digest then give this a try.
Thanks again.

Nanci, could you make this thread a sticky with your new found powers?
I often go to link to it and can't find it quick enough.

Hmmm- I'll have to investigate how to do that! When I wrote the thread I tried to make it a title I would remember because I knew I'd be referring people to it a lot!

So is there need to worry when a snake is "in blue" for too long? How long are they in blue?

You can't do anything to speed the shed along, anyway. The whole process can take up to two weeks for a cornsnake, but two weeks is longer than usual. I'd estimate about 7-12 days for the entire process, depending on how good you are at detecting the very first signs.

Alright. That puts me a little more at ease. Thank you!
