A few months ago i was on this site looking for advice on what snake to buy.
Now ive finaly got a cute little carolina corn snake about 1 foot long.
Any way the shop that i bought it from told me its eyes are blue because it was shedding.
He told me to leave it until it stops.
Today its eyes were back to normal but the snake hasnt shed its skin!
Is that normal???

They go through stages when shedding - first they just go a bit dull, then the eyes go blue/body takes on a milky appearance, then the eyes clear and they look almost normal - then they shed a few days after that.

If you are lucky you will get to see it shed, make sure it has something rough to rub against.

The first time mine shed i thought it was going mad, charging around the viv head butting everything, then gis skin started to peel off, wierd or what.

Was an awsome thing to watch though.

Fingers crossed you get to see it
