:But yeah, about the feeding during a shed cycle....would I be wasting my time and money trying to feed him right now??
Yes, you would likely be wasting the mouse and stressing the snake. I would wait until he is through his shed and then wait a day or two and offer. Give him a damp moss hide now so that he has higher humidity and a good chance of a good shed. I can't tell from your pict but it looks like he is on crushed walnut shells or something equally indigestible. So I would either feed him out of his enclosure (it will help if he is used to that) or change to something less likely to impact if he eats any. Just my thoughts. Sonya
