Bad shed!!
« on: February 12, 2017, 13:13:49 PM »
I rescued a ball python last week, he was dehydrated and in shed. I have soaked him twice but the skin from his neck to his head is still really stuck, I don't know what else to do, any advice!?

Keep soaking and rubbing him through a damp towel is best best as you been doing, Zoo Med Repti Shedding Aid is very good and worth a try as well

put him in a damp pillowcase and put it back in the viv.

With him moving around inside it, he might free up the stuck shed himself
