In Reply to: an interesting statement... posted by erik w on January 22, 2003 at 17:30:07:

:Hi Erik -- What husbandry problem would cause a bad shed? The only thing I can think of is the very low humidity but since they are often found in areas with low humidity, I did not think that was a problem. Also - what health/physical problems may cause a bad shed? Please expand on your statement a little so I have some more information to consider.

Thanks!
Martha


::As long as it appears healthy in every way besides not feeding, don't worry. Keep offering food every week, but don't be surprised if it doesn't eat until spring. Hope this helps,

:i agree. however, the bad shed may be an indicator of either a husbandry problem, a health problem, or a physical problem with the snake...i think that bad sheds are not something to ignore!!
