    I'm pretty sure one of our corns has shed recently but there is absolutely no sign of any shed in his viv, are they known to eat the shed? About a week ago I fed him and had to actually tap him on the nose with the mouse so he could find it, the whole skin was dull and eyes completely opaque...

    Yeah, it's not ready to shed yet! They don't shed like clock work. It's really nothing to worry about. If it's been 2 months im sure it will shed in the next few weeks

    For the last few days my corn has been in shed, looking a bit duller than usual and grey coloured eyes. I expected to get back last night and her to have shed.... she was looking brighter and her eyes bright red again. However, there is no skin in her viv! Im a bit confused, anyone any ideas?

    Hi all somewhere between 4.30pm yesterday and 12pm today my corn Jester shed but he has left about 2" on near his tail end, should I try and dampen it to loosen it or leave it tell next time and up the humidity by giving him a moss hide. Please help, awaiting your replies John
