Default How to tell Albino Royal is going into shed...

As the title says really, looking to you fellow Albino Royal owners for some help. How do you tell when they're going into shed? With my Normal I can always tell by the pink belly or glazed over eyes but can't see any of that on the little one. When I got him he was just about to shed and even then I couldn't see the "signs".
So, what trick do you guys use to determine whether they're about to shed or not.

Thank you all in advance.

Ben

The two I have both loose their 'shine' and normal bright appearance about a week before, admittedly they have only shed once since I've had them but it was pretty easy to spot what was going on.

Thanks deefa139, I have noticed the loss of shine, that's what alerted me to the possibility of shedding and I've started raising the humidity. Again, thanks for your reply.

Its tough to tell with albino snakes but you can notice a slight pinkness tot he stomach and an over all dullness, once they are fully in blue its quite apparent.
