In Reply to: Good "poor man's solution" to bad sheds... posted by JDP on April 22, 2003 at 08:17:19:

Im too poor to afford towels (not really), but this is what I do :)

Around shed time, I just dump most of the water bowl. Throughouly soaking the inside of the cage. The combination of the heaters and light will make the water quickly start rising. This tends to make the entire cage between 90-100% humidity. Within a day or two the cage is pretty much dry again and I do it all over until the shed is over with.

Just make sure that if the water doesn't evaporate within in two/three days that you CLEAN IT UP, as it can start to stink, mold, and cause problems.

:What I do for my 11' female is I take a bath towel and fold it up (like its hanging on the rack in the bathroom) and I wet the top two layers thoroughly. Not soaked just nicely damp. Put it in the cage and most times the snake will lay on it. Remoisten with a spray bottle daily and your burm (or any snake) will shed nicely. For small species I use washcloths or even smaller (BPs), folded up toilet paper in their hide box. Works great.
