I just got three separate asks about humidity all within the span of a minute and a half. Are you joking.

Can I just say about much I love your knowledge on snakes, 100% sincere. Your blog is definitely one of my all time favorites. =D

Goodness, thank you.

So I recently noticed this white sliver of skin around Octavian’s right eye. I’m rather worried as it shouldn’t be time for her to shed yet.
Her humidity levels are between 40-50%
Hot side: 90 degrees F
Cool Side: 70 degrees F
She eats 2 fuzzies each week
She is 1 year old
I’m taking my dog to a vet tomorrow for his checkup. I plan on showing this picture to a staff on hand to see what they think. Any suggestions from anyone else though?

It looks like the lining of the ocular cavity might have inverted slightly, not 100% sure on it though. I’d still take your snoot with you to the vet to be safe.

That sounds about right, it usually occurs during a rough shed but there can be other causes like simply excessive face rubbing. Sometimes they’ll revert on their own after the next shed and sometimes they don’t. In the meantime, it might be a good idea to bump her humidity levels.

Neither of these snakes are a BP or a BC. The one on the left is a Dumeril’s Boa and the one on the right is a Burmese Python.

You're naming the mice that you're going to feed to your snakes? Don't get attached ):

I’m naming mice that are going to be used for breeding feeders. They’re going to be sticking around for a while.

Decided on Biscuit, Cantaloupe, and Willow for the names of the mice. Thanks for all the suggestions!

Yeah, get some satin and hairless ones. You'll have a lot of fun.

I’ll probably try to pick up some Satins but Hairless mice are expensive and according to everything all the rodent people I know have told me, super duper prone to cancer so that’s not high on the radar for me.

What size (hoppers, pups?) should i feed my 1 1/2 month old bp and how often?

That depends how big it is.
