    This is my new albino Nelsons milksnake. He is 3 years old, and i am still trying to think of a name for him. Suggestions are happily welcomed. :)
    This is my first snake so i will probably be asking alot of questions. :)
    When i got him, his colours were more vibrant does this mean he is shedding? any help would be great.

    It could be a shed coming up, or it could be a difference in the lighting in the cage. You should know in a week or so!

    Thank you. Cant wait till i get him out of his tank, but i was advised to leave him for atleast a week before handling him so he is not as stressed. :)

    Well I think congratulations are in order. Very nice looking guy. As for a name Edward is a good name, after Edward W. Nelson, his namesake nelsons milksnake. Or my Milkshake:D, but thats kind of girly. I sure you will find out what his personality is and name him accordingly. Have lots of fun with your newest member of the family.

    If it is indeed a shed I would leave him be till its over. They can get a bit grouchy during that period and they don't see very well.
