I'm soooooo pleased, my baby corn shed for the first time since i got her just before xmas. I knew she was ready due to the colour of her eyes, I just didn't think I would be this happy after she actually did it. :D [/img]

I din't mean to press image, but I do have pics which I will post once on a disk. No, unfortunatly I didn't see her shed, I got up this morning and went to check on her and hey presto; her skin was off.

I never seen mine but managed to catch some of my mums shedding. It was amazing, she just wriggled right out and the end part of her tail went pinging across the tank :lol:

keep it and measure and keep the date for future reference, hopefully you'll spy a shed in action one day

Hehe I know the feeling, I've had my baby corn over a month now and I was so excited when my boyfriend spotted her first shed in her viv. We're gecko breeders mainly and they eat all their shedded skin so I was like "Woooow" when I saw that skin perfect copy of her. lol.

I still get excited when my snakes shed and eat and poo etc etc and I've seen it all loads of times (the last one is the least appealing I have to say, the squelching noises are :sick:) I've been lucky enough to catch most of my snakes shedding at some point and I still love it!!
