First Blue Phase

Hello! My first corn snake has gone into his first blue phase today. Iíve had him less than a month. Iíve got a humid moss hide for him.

Approximately how long will it take for him to fully shed his skin now that he has started the process?

Thank you.

How old is he? Babies tend to have a faster shed phase, and adults tend to take a bit longer. I'd say the average is about 10 days? After the blue phase, he'll go into a 'clear' phase, so don't be surprised when he looks normal again but you can't find a shed! He'll shed a day or two after the clear phase.

He was 3-4 months old when I got him, according to what I was told. I havenít been able to measure him yet but Iíd guess heís a little over a foot long. He weighs 13 grams.

Iím looking forward to him shedding. I want to send it out for DNA testing to confirm the gender. Thanks for the info!

Cute! Yup, he looks very blue! I've done the DNA testing. It's a neat service.

Is he/she a anery tessera? I like the odd head stamp.
BTW, Olivia is right on the mark with the shedding info.

Very blue! We look forward to seeing your baby in bright new skin soon.

Yes, he is an anery tessera. The mark on his head reminds me of the Greek letter omega. His eyes have already cleared.

Who did you use for DNA testing?

Rare Genetics. I think they're the only company that offers it.
