Sheeding has very little to do with feeding dates.
Let her settle, don't mess with her too much, give her a meal and wait for the blue hue over the eyes.
I've noticed a lot of snakes go a little pink underneath when they're coming to shed, the fact she is white all over will just pronounce it a bit

Ill feed her on Friday and lets see what happens.

Personally, for such a heavy bodied snake I'm not a fan of using heat mats as a source of heat, and even though you have dialed it in, if the snake sits on the sensor (assuming the sensor is laying on the glass above the mat) this can cause the thermostat to overdrive the mat. If this is the case then this may be the reason she is pink on her belly.

Yeah the interference with the sensor when the snake sits on it was an issue i experienced some years ago when i first had snakes. Since then, i place the probe attached to the bottom outside of hides so that they are always in contact with the heat mats but not being interfered with by the snake Works beaut now.

also, last night i was having a play with the big girl and brought her by a lamp just to see her color better. That is when i noticed that her eyes looked blue and suddenly i thought, thats not right, shes a black eyed. Took her closer to the lamp and thats when you could see that familiar blue grey hue on the eyes. Yes, shed looks to be coming on. Lets see how it pans out over the next few days.
Ill post some of her after her shed

Well, she’s shed completely but she’s still got these red streaks. They aren’t on her belly either but more on her top. Kind of along her spine and the sides of it...

I don’t get it...

Here are some pictures. Shes still got a touch of shed under her chin left to remove but you can see the red marks and patches. In the next post Ill post some zoomed pics.

Also, shes got these weird scales that have brown marks on them. These stayed after shed. They dont look like mites, Ive checked her for that. In the next post there will be a zoom pic
