Hi guys... i have a wee bit of a problem i hope. Was in a reptile store to day in Carrick , N. Ireland nice wee shop, well to cut things short, the owner was of sick so his wife there for the day... and i spyed 2 young columbian boas ,nothing would do me i had to have 1, but the only prob was he was he was selling them as a pair, asked how much.. £100 for the 2 which i thought was a fair deal so i bought them, the only prob with them was they where going through a bad shed so the humidity was wrong in the viv. Now 1 of them isnt to bad but the other one is losing it skin in patches, but its eyes seem to be very cloudy still ,would that be retained eye caps. I know they need high humidity they are in there vivs already and the humidity gauge is up at 80, should i soak them in the bath are just let them settle in first.

I'd put humid hides in the vivs to start with. I'm guessing they're both quite small so ventilated lunchbox-type containers with an entrance hole cut in the side and 1/3 filled with damp sphagnum moss should help.

If the eye caps are retained then they may eventually need to be removed manually, but better to let the snakes have a go themselves first.
