    Ok since the settling days are done i can finally hold her and i noticed she had two weird patches of shiny scales that are rough but not flakey. i read it was possibly a humidity issue but for me its 50-60 depending on how long i leave the humidifier on. I tried to get pick but my camera didnt like it, she has no mites and ate thursday. i also found out the breeder and shes from outback reptiles

    The guy did say she was on live feeders could they be scars

    It could be scars or the snake might be starting to shed soon. My humidity isn't very high in my boas tank and she is still very healthy with no problems. Not really sure what it could be. Hard to tell from the picture and I haven't experienced anything like that....

    But her eyes never went blue unless I missed it

    scars from a bite are clearly evident. don't think that's what you have, I can't tell from the pix so maybe it's just some stuck shed... They dont look like anything bad and I'll bet they'll get better with new sheds
