In Reply to: scientific definition of "shedding" posted by Nancy Latthitham on February 18, 2002 at 13:16:23:

ecdysis: the act of molting or shedding an outer cuticular layer.
here's a good site on it

: My 11 year old son is doing a visual science experiment. He has to include a scientific definition. He wants to use the last two sheds from his baby corn snake to demonstrate that when fed 3 pinkies per week his corn snake grew 5" in the 8 weeks between sheds. Can anyone help us out with a scientific definition of a snake shedding or direct us to a resource? Many thanks!
