    Hey all,

    Just had my albino out then and noticed her head is quite shiny and the scales seem to be slightly concaved looking. would you think this is due to her rubbing her head on the click clack lid? or slight dehydration or just a young snake growing? she has no wrinkles in her body and seems normal, just her head scales look odd for some reason. her last 2 sloughs were full with no tares and she has a large water bowl.. maybe its normal but it can never hurt to check. I tried to get a pic but its a little average as im not good with an dslr yet..

    Toby,

    Wow look at the tiny eyes. :D
    Could be dandruff, might get her on a dilute of head and shoulders and see how we go :)
