So in fifteen years of reptiles I've never once had an issue with mites. Two rescued snakes later (4' burm baby and 8' *pregnant* red tail), my isolation room is up to it's eyeballs in them.

Literally, eyeballs. Not having had any actual experience with them, I'm more than slightly disturbed by the state of the burm's eyes. After a bit of digging I've seen that they like to cause a "bit of a rim" around the eyes, but this seems like more than a "bit". It's like the scales have been completely separated from the eye.

So I have two questions:

1. How bad does that sound?

2. What are the long term healing options? It's going into a shed; will this damage heal with future sheds?

OK, thanks folks.
