Shedding skin in a common
thing for all snakes. Their behaviour may differ from snake
to snake, but the end result is the same. In general, snakes
will get a milky appearance to their skin and eyes. This is
completely normal for a snake that is about to shed.
The shedding process takes time, and again, it will
be different from snake to snake. The average time it takes
is roughly 13 days. It can be anywhere from 7 to 15 days though.
Always provide your snake fresh and clean water during this
time. The snake will soak itself in the water to loosen the
old skin. Increased humidity at all times will aid in the
shedding process because it will also help to loosen the old
Always remember, it is not a wise decision to feed or pick
up your snake while they are shedding skin. If you
notice that your snake is having problems shedding its skin
you will want to take it to a veterinarian because the shedding
process can cause a great deal of stress to the snake.
