    Hey guys I purchased a lesser ball python at the weekend and I've noticed what looks to be wrinkles/cracking in the eyes and I'm wondering if it's a retained eye cap from a bad shed or dehydration, any ideas? I've raised her humidity to 70% and I've been bathing her too image_zpsc845ljob.jpeg...

    I`ve just had to help my juvi boa with his 3rd very bad consecutive shed. I`ve tried upping the humidity by blocking vents and putting a large waterdish under the ceramic to no avail. Can`t think of anything short of spraying the viv every day, but its wooden and I don`t have to do it with my...

    Hi guys, I have a very grumpy 2011 arabesque. She shed overnight but the head and neck area is still completely intact. Strange, as they are supposed to start there!
