::I talked to a woman who worked at a zoo in Washington and also El Paso.... She suggested that I put the snake in a wet cloth bag for 24hrs...

:This method is frequently suggested for problem shedding. Just be aware that the water can expand the fibres of the bag making the weave far tighter and more *airtight* then a dry bag. The effect likely varies depending on the type of material. I have heard of several cases of this method resulting in suffocation.

Thanks TB...the pillow case I useworked out alright but it didn't seem to help much so I have discontinued the treatment. It did allow me to open a small air way in the nostril on one side. Do you know what could be going on with him? Anything would be helpful.
Thanks
