hi everyone at what stage would you help your snake with shedding.

my royal shed yesterday but it was not a complete shred he still has his head with all the retained skin left on.

he was much more active last night after the shed but i dont want to leave him to long in case it causes a problem,

any advise please.

I'd give him a humid hide( a plastic box filled with moss with a hole cut out) and leave him to it for now.

You might want to increase your humidity a touch before next time. An occasional mist would do this. : victory:
