    Very cool. Snakes are beautiful animals, they're so intriguing. I like the 2nd to last one best. :)

    I love the second shot! I like a tight crop on snake images - they are amazing to look at, so full of color and texture. Nice job! :)

    How do you notice that the time for shedding has come yet again? Does your snake become this pale then? All over? Eyes included?
    And where are the photos of the PROCESS - half in the old skin and half out? Hm? Hm? ;)

    You notice when she is getting ready to shed, mostly because her eyes turn blue (photo #2) And the rest of her body gets a bit dull. Once the eyes are clear again, she will shed in a day, maybe 2.
    And i havent took any pics of the process, since she does that at night...........while im a sleep. Plus the fact that she probably sheds in her hide, which makes it rather hard to shoot.
    Would be totally cewl if i could shoot it when she is in the process. Maybe someday. I will most certainly post the pics then :)
    Ill try and shoot some pics of her old skin today and post them here.
    And thanks for the comments again :)

    thank you :)
    Its a Ball Python (Royal python in the UK) Python Regius
    I bought at the end of august and i think she was about 2 months at the time (really cant tell for sure) so thats should make her about 6 months.
    She is about 50 cm now, i havent ever measured her though. So she still needs to grow abit.......about 1 meter to go :)
