I'm so glad I found this! I got my corn snake about a month ago. He's about 2. He's going through a bad shed right now so I tried soaking him, but he flipped out about being placed in the water (it was lukewarm, not too hot, not cold!). He still has a lot of the old skin on. Should I give him a few more days before trying again?

Going to try this for Bandit's next shed. His first shed came off in two pieces. Since I have a more natural tank with LOTS of wood and things to catch the skin on, I didn't think much of it. But this time the shed was littered about the bottom of the enclosure and he seemed to have a much harder time. Even pulled a scale off his side somehow.

Great sticky, and thanks for the write-up!

I have always given mine a "bath." I fill a bowl with luke warm water, and let him soak for a minute or two. I can then usually use my hands to start the shed again, and he's able to wiggle on out of it with no problems.
