Shedding Snakes and Eating
Name: David Y.
My four month old corn snake's eyes are hazed over today
so it is going to shed. I am going out of town on Friday which is the
planned day for the snake's weekly feed. Should I try to feed the snake
on Friday or should I let it go a second week without eating?
Most snakes will not eat when they are in the immediate pre-shed phase, and
going another week without food will not do it any harm.
