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.
Old 12-31-2009, 08:07 AM   #46
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.
Old 12-31-2009, 12:24 PM   #49
Alright. That puts me a little more at ease. Thank you!

Is going to agree with Nanci, mine usualy take 7-12 days like Nanci sed "if you know the signs "

Pepper...... I knew the effects, just didnt think ske would poop, she pretty shy snake

i also think this should be "Stickied"
