1st shed gone bad???

It's time for Phoebes 1st shed...I awoke this morning to her skin in pieces just behing her head. I tried to catch her to help with a wet warm washcloth, but she was extra energetic and I gave up. I did not want to stress her out, she has a lot of work ahead of her today. My question is...Can she just do it on her own w/o me? I have to work 12 hours today, and she will be on her own. Should I come home for lunch and check on her or can she go 12 hours till I get home? How long does it take? And what happens if her shed is messed up or incomplete?? I misted real good and left the wet wash cloth in the hot area of her home. She is on her pine cone right now, loving on it
I'll check back before lunch for replies. Being a first time snake owner is stressful mama work

She'll be all right until you get home. Who knows, she could finish up the shed by then.

NEVERMIND...While I was on here and writting that first post, Phoebe was slizzzzering back to her hide in her beautiful new skin. I went to check on her after posting and all I saw was her pretty little body slidding into her hide with her old shed laying in two pieces under her pinecone. By the way, it is a very old pinecone,no stickers and cleaned very well. I feel so stupid...my little girl is fine and she taught me a lesson, Mom needs to back off
Thanks anyway, still glad you were here forum.

Mom of a very pretty little girl
Pie, I'll get the new photos of her belly and new skin this weekend after she is back to normal
