In Reply to: Found a fix.... posted by vixen on April 14, 2003 at 03:36:42:

: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.
