this was a pic of one of my royals when i first got her;


and after her shed this weekend she's come out with really light patches and her white from her belly seems higher which she didnt have as defined before! i think she looks lovely but she's changed so much!




with flash;


is this normal? I know some change over sheds but her sides are so diff to how she was a few weeks ago!

I seem to remember seeing this mentioned by someone in a thread a few weeks ago but not had it with mine.

What substrate are you using? I'm using bark and I was spraying it to keep up humidity during mines shed, and it turned out so much whiter on the stomach because before, soil/dirt from the wet substrate was all over him. Plus snakes colours get quite dull naturally as the top layer of skin isn't really living anymore.

This is quite common in Royals, I had a het pied male that I sold to someone on here and it went from dark to almost pastel like with intense blushing that just appeared after several sheds...
