    My Diamond's eyes have been Opaque for a week or two now and he just won't shed.
    His basking area is approx 32Deg for 12 hours daily
    He has a small water bowl with seemingly little humidity
    He basks all day and when lighting timer switches off he goes from his perch to a hide in the "hot" end.
    Any ideas?

    Cheers

    They dont shed until their eyes have gone clear again
    sounds normal though, if its been a week. 2 weeks im not sure, some one will know, how long do they normally stay cloudy for?

    make sure you have a water bowl big enough for him to get in if he wants and somewhere rough to rub himself up against like a rock or branch

    watching your snake shed is very interesting. as said before it is a few days between the eyes going milky and a shed

    When the eyes go cloudy I spray the enclosure with water once a day to lift the humidity, my Diamond stay cloudy about a week then clear & shed between 3 days and a week later.
