For the past several weeks, I had noticed my Ball Python had a silvery eye on one side with little cracks near the center. After reading a variety of mixed opinions on the web, I thought taking action was better than doing nothing, so I tried the scotch tape method (after soaking him in the tub for about 15 minutes) to carefully remove what I believed to be a retained eye cap.
A fairly clear, round eye cap came off and his eye looked the normal shiny black color. The following day, I noticed his belly is the pinkish hue and his skin is dull so he is getting ready to shed. What concerns me is that his eye is a fairly dull gray color, which is different from his usual "in the blue."
What does this sound like? Something to be really concerned about? I called my local vet and they cannot work him in to be checked.
Any help would be most appreciated!
I am sorry, I do not have a picture to post either.
