    he should shed either today, tomorrow or maybe the next day at the most? But it all depends on temperature and humidity levels :) My bredli hatchy's eyes have gone milky too he's about to have his first shed since being in my care. I'm hell excited! Well be sure to post pics for us when your bredli does shed!

    Better for your snake to be left alone until he has shed, usually a few days to a week after eyes have cleared. This is a rather uncomfortable time for snakes and handling him could damage his new skin, snakes do not enjoy being handled constantly and for them it can be extremly distressing so moderation is the key for a healthy happy snake
