    Nice, my new jungle shed the first time with me at the start of the week too, you've got to be lucky to catch a shed, been keeping snakes for 6 years and only seen it in the flesh a few times, most of the time they shed at night or in the early hours of the morning from my experience. Next time you notice a shed coming on and the chin rubbing starts, grab a chair and hope the snake does its thing

    Mine always eat straight after a shed generally they missed a feed the week before so getting them to take it isn't an issue, some show more signs of a shed then others, my childrens and spotteds would go milky all over for a week, clear up for a day and then shed, where as my jungle only goes slightly dull for a few days before a shed
