Little update on Flint, skip to the last paragraph for the actual question Haven't posted in a bit, been pretty preoccupied with finding out my snake has RI I didn't post because I knew the best advice was to get him to a vet ASAP, so we went last Monday. That was his first vet visit, so he got dewormed, along with oral RI medicine that apparently absorbs through the gums. He was weighed by the vet to be 40g, didn't get him measured but say 1.5'. Other than the RI, vet said he looked great. Other than being pale and going into shed. He gets his medicine squirts every other day, so today was his 2nd one. 3 more and he's done. Then a check up at the vet, and hopefully this never happens again Of course, the reason was without a doubt my poor husbandry. I had a stick on gel thermometer, (which actually wasn't too inaccurate) a 60 watt red bulb (which was no match for the cold spell we just had in CA), an analog gauge hygrometer (it read 15% high!!) and misting twice a day. Luckily, I got paid on Monday, so on the way home from the vet we stopped at the local pet supply store (where I also dropped off a resume yesterday ) and picked up coconut husk substrate, peat moss, fake ivy-like plants that cover the whole terrarium floor, an ultrasonic fogger, a 150 watt black light (on a thermostat so it runs about 10 seconds every other minute lol), a 3-in-1 repti shelter (which he doesn't use ) and then at Home Depot I got an acu-rite indoor-outdoor hygrometer/thermometer w/ min/max memory (that's how I knew my old hygrometer was so wrong!) and an outlet timer for the fogger. SO... long story short, his tank is now at 83-85 F (vet said to keep it a little warmer than usual while he's fighting the RI) with 95-99% humidity on the cold side (I'm sad to say the new acu-rite thing told me his humidity has been around 65% when I was using the analog gauge). NOW.. the actual question lol. I found his first shed today since I've had him. I know sheds are supposed to come off all in one piece. I found it in 2 main halves along with a few other chunks. I checked over his whole body and didn't find anything that looked like dead skin still hanging on. I figured since his humidity is now where it should be, he should shed fine. Could him being sick have affected the shed? Or am I worried over nothing because it simply tore in a few places as he slithered through the coconut husk? (I found it half buried in the substrate on the warm side) Thanks for reading! I'll post pics later edit: pic of the shed, and a photo shoot from last night! still can't really see the rainbow... I'll have to take him outside in the sun for some shots later. The model is one of my best friends, she took some amazing pics lol. I'll post more from last night soon as my dad gets done cleaning them up with photoshop and after I get permission of course lol.
