Today my anaconda had his first poor shed, it was breaking off in pieces up by his head but then eventually came off in two main pieces, mainly the tail portion then the body(in that order) he was really moving alot to get it all off, so some of the loose pieces were pulled off from him moving away from the spot where his body pinned it down.(much like if you have something stuck to the bottom of one shoe, you stand on it with the other shoe as you walk to get it off) i know i am not supposed to pull at shedding skin, but isnt this similar to that? any potential damage signs i should look for? I am also nearly 100% sure that i saw both eyecaps in the shedded skin, but if i cannot locate those patches again, is there another way to be certain the eyecaps came off?
