:Hi every one I have two quick questions one since I got my burm about five months ago she has never had a complete shed in one piece though the last three times She got it all off by herself in pieces. The last two including her shed today I had to help her. Today she had a horrible shed. My question is why is this happening? I know it could be humidity but I keep her humidity level at 50% but when her eyes get cloudy I raise it to 60% is this the correct humidity level. I also heard ticks can stress them out not sure if this is true but I looked over her and found none. The temp is 85 with a basking of about 91.
:Thanks

The humidity is a little low.What i do is when mine are getting ready to shed i mist them heavily to bring the humidity up to around 85-90% and all mine shed perfectly.The humidity in my cages usually stays around 70% but the extra misting doesnt seem to bother them. Hope that helps. Regards Bill McLeod
