My snakes eyes went cloudy about 4 days ago and he has been soaking on and off since. I have also increased humidity from 55% up to between 65 & 70%.

Can anybody give me a general idea of how long carpets take until they fully shed.

I dont know about carpets although I can set my clock by my corn and royal. exactly 2 days after eyes go clear, skin comes off.

Does shedding vary greatly between dfferent species?

Cheers people.

He was rubbing his nose about last night so hopefully he's loosening up ready to come out all shiny.

Normally yes and is also dependant on the age of the animal, most snakes start the shedding process when the eyes go milky coloured, then within a few days the colour will look like it has come back.

When this happens the snake will usually shed within 48 hous.

Have seen some snakes take 2+ weeks from the eyes going cloudy.
