Ok now that we are on the subject of shedding again...... Hawns eyes have been cloudy for about 4 days now and she has been a bit on the skitish side, so I know she is getting ready but how long does it usually take before she will actually shed? I cant wait to see how bright and brillant her color is going to get after she sheds. By the way she sure hasnt lost her appetite though. When she ate on Tues it was one of the biggest rats I have ever seen but she gobbled it down and seemed to look at me like " ok dad I ate my dinner now wheres dessert? lol
When I got her I thought she was eatting every other week. I found out yesterday that she was actually only eating about once every third or fourth week. The people my sister in law got her from said if they fed her anymore often then that, that it wasnt good for her.
I now feed her once a week and she has no prob at all eating dead prey now.
Also I was wondering.... ok this will show my ignorence....
Do snakes grow and then shed the skin or is it when they shed that they grow?
I have had Hwan for going on 2 months now and she is the exact same length she was when I got her. She hasnt shed since I got her but she has gotten bigger around and gained about 5 pounds.

I don't know either. I would think they grow and stretch their skin out and that is the reason for the shed. I do know they tend to shed more if something isn't right, like mites.
Probably like a pair of jeans, when they start becoming faded and stained, a few holes in the legs, its time to get a new pair.

If its the case that she isnt shedding cuz she is healkthy then I have one helll of a healthy snake. lol
I was looking at her eyes today and they dont look cloudy at all but he hasnt shed yet either. Her disposition today is really good too. I was cleaning her "Condo" a little bit ago and she cmae right up to me and was wanting to climb on my artm and just seemed to want some overall attention. So Im guessing the mood before was cuz she had just eaten. I just cant wait till she sheds again.

my burm sometimes takes up to a week to shed after her eyes clear up. Good luck

Yeah, mine also take a week or more after the cloudy eyes before they shed. During winter they hardly shed at all when they are in they're semi-hibernation stage, but they hardly grow during that time.
