Conopsis lineata shed its skin

Wednesday, December 13, 2006 | 1 comment

A week ago I wrote on how the eyes of my pet snake, a Conopsis lineata (Tolucan ground snake), had become quite milky, a clear sign that it was going to shed its skin very soon. And today I looked at the terrarium and noticed a piece of shed snake skin.

The snake had gone from view for almost a week, and I was quite glad to see finally a clear sign that all was ok, or at least that it had been able to shed its skin.

I removed one stone to have a better look at the shed snake skin, and to be able to make a nice photo from above. A little later I saw the snake's head peeking out from under a stone, and it looked good, no more milky eyes, but clear and sharp ones.
