    Yesterday afternoon she started rubbing her nose against herself and any rough surface. I got excited thinking that I’ll finally catch her in the act. At 1AM I finally gave up checking on her and went to bed. At 4AM I woke up and checked on her, and yeah... she’s done it.

    Don't worry. You'll see her shed eventually. I tend to see my snakes shed just about every time these days. They tend to shed around similar times, usually between 8-11 at night, and 6-9 in the mornings. The majority of their shedding happens at night though. When they're done I tend to pick them up and inspect them in bright light, seeing that beautiful glossy iridescent sheen is truly something to behold. It never gets old.

    @Nero Egernia It seems she sheds in that 1am-4am window :) I’m both an night owl and light sleeper and so far she has done it in that time window every time. But I’ll catch her one day!
    She looks and feels so velvety after.
    She has had 5 sheds with me, and only once the skin split in two and she had a few flakes still stuck on her after.
