Just as I get Zen situated, another problem arises. Not having a good week with my reptiles it seems.
Noticed I hadn’t seen Byakko in a few days. Dug him out to find him in shed but extra wrinkly. More than a snake should be for sure. I figure he’s dehydrated for some reason, despite his heater being controlled and having a water dish available at all times. I remember reading that young sand boas have trouble with dehydration…Figures mine would be one of them.
Went ahead and gave him a light sauna but I’m not sure how much help it’ll be. His military tank accessory/hide is rough enough for shedding but he never leaves his cave hide or unburies himself so I’m not sure what to put in his enclosure to help him out.
Advice would be great!
not necessarily dehydrated, but badly needs to shed. Make sure the snake has access to some sort of humid spot to help get the shed off, and something the snake can rub against to shed with. Trouble shedding sand boas often look like this.
