Hey /an/ I got my first snake, around maybe a month and a half ago, probably a little more. Well my snake started shedding its skin like 2 weeks ago, I had to help it shed because it was doing it in pieces, its been a while and the snake still hasn't shed its head and neck. Don't know what to do, any help is accepted. Thanks in advance (its a ball python btw)

spray him down a bit, try to get the bits off yourself if you can. Roll, dont peel. What kind of snek?

>I had to help it shed because it was doing it in pieces
don't do that
>Don't know what to do
increase the humidity and don't worry about it.

had the same issue with my ball python a while back, heres what worked for me:
i took a box about the size of one of those small styrofoam coolers, cut a decent size entry hole in it, and filled it about 1/3 of the way with sphagnum moss. i keep the moss damp, and there is one of those heat pads underneath it. she hung out in there for a while, and her next shed (and every shed since) was perfect. she doesnt camp out in it all day anymore, but she definitely spends a fair amount of time in there. if you do this, make sure to check temp and humidity inside the box every day for a week or so to make sure everything is proper

Yeah, just kinda help him get it off when you can, if he's still got his eye caps on make sure he does better next shed. I recommend soaking him once he gets really dull, and for extra good sheds, hang him on the toilet-paper holder during hot showers. He'll love it.

Yea man do you think it matters the place you get it

Never pull a shed off an animal.
Spray it with water several times a day.
Give it a big bowl to soak in.
Make sure it has proper stuff in its enclosure to rub it off on.

DONT EVER PULL IT OFF

Thanks mate, I'm happy to learn new tricks and what not to make my animal happier!
Should I also do the shower thing?
Several times?
