i have 2 questions:
1. anybody out there with juvenile Florida Kings...how often do you feed them? i feed mine like 2 fuzzies a week. the other day, though,(it was a couple days before feeding time) i walked up to my snake's cage and noticed he was halfway out of his hidebox. i stuck my finger up to the glass and he came rushing over with his mouth open! i wasn't teasing him and it wasn't an angry reaction. i think it was hunger. has anybody had this happen? should i feed him more often than what i'm doing?
2. will snakes' shed cycles speed up at times? my Cali King shed just a few weeks ago and now he's in shed again. he's around 4 feet long and i think this is kind of soon for a snake his size. will they do this if they have external skin problems? i think there was a piece of skin on his nose that didn't come off on his last shed. could this be why he's shedding again so soon?

thanks for any help/advice!
