How often should my snake shed?


The frequency a snake sheds it's skin depends on two major factors

  • Dietary habits - The more it eats, the more it grows, the more it sheds
  • Age - The older a snake gets the less frequently it will shed

A juvenile snake will typically shed its skin once every 2 to 3 weeks with adults shedding every 6 to 8 weeks. This isn't a hard or fast rule just what is typical.
