if the skin is comin away, he prob sheddin, usually, it comes of in one go. Did his eyes go like a blue colour b4 the skin started peeling off or anything? might be best to moist him up a little and leave him to see what happens. p.s If he was expecting shed, prob not best to handle him. pics would help thanks

Put a moss box in the viv your snake will disappear in there and absorb all the moisture it needs for a good shed, our corns and royal love their moss boxes and we have'nt had a part shed yet.
