I just picked up a 10 month old Hypo Blood het Kahl 2 weeks ago. She just shed for the first time for me, and unfortunately had a stuck eye cap and has these white spots on her back. I can’t tell if it’s unshed scales or if scales were pulled off in the shedding process, or something else. Any advice?
It’s not uncommon to see discoloration like this on BC after a shed. Sometimes it goes away and sometimes it doesn’t, but in either case, it is not a health concern and does not need treatment. The eyecap, however, is an issue that needs to be adressed.
I definitely agree with @westridge. My boy Kai has several of these spots that haven’t gone away. It is completely fine though they can disappear after a few sheds.
Thanks. Update… eye cap is taken care of. I increased the overall room humidity, hopefully this doesn’t happen again.
And if it does don’t stress, and stuck eye cap is not scale rot or a RI. A stuck eye cap is easy to take care of, you got this.
By the way that is one beautiful snake, I really like hypo bloods
