Signs of snake shedding
The Ball Pythons belly begins to turn pink and the eyes begin to fog over. Providing the proper humidity required by your Ball python is important to prevent non-problematic sheds. Maintain a humidity of 60%-70% during a shed cycle.
Baby/Juvenile Ball Pythons shed their skin every few weeks because they are continuously growing. While an adult Ball Pythons may only shed their skin every few months. Some Ball Pythons may also shed their skin because their skin is irritated due to mites, If you notice mites or your snake is bathing more frequently or small black specs are appearing in the bottom of the water dish. I would recommend giving the snakes enclosure a treatment or two with Provent-a-Mite.
Dysecdysis is a word used to describe a variety of shedding difficulties. It occurs when a snake attempts to shed but some old skin is retained on some part of the body.
Whenever your Ball Python sheds, you should inspect it closely to make sure all old skin has come off, particularly in the eye area.
