    Pretty much ALL of my snakes are in shed this week it seems and I thought this was pretty wierd since they are all different ages, sizes, and have different parameters. Ok so only two of them are pythons but I couldn't really find a better place to put this, sorry. Anywho the only similarity between any of them is that I generally feed everybody on the weekend. Any ideas about why they are all shedding at once?

    Coincedence, I've never heard anyone say all their snakes shed at the same time. But it is a full moon so....

    Definitely a good topic of conversation. I would say it's coincidence as well. With the environment being consistent for all of them as well as feeding schedules, it's not unlikely that the timing would be right for all of them to occasionally shed at once. :)

    I agree, it has to be a coincidence, mine feed at different times and sometimes shed at the same time. ;)

    i dont know, ive heard of it before


    it might also be, if they are in the same room, and their enclosures are close to each other, it might be like the female monthly system, sometime they end up going in sync with that


    maybe its a coincidence, maybe not

    I was going to say the same thing John! - we have noticed that quite often certain snakes shed at the same time, in particular snakes that are housed together, like the 3 adult female corns, and the two hogg island boas. It may well be coincidence, although there may be something out there... :D
