>>Thanks very much for the reply. Stressed - Violently moving, attempting to bite, voiding fecal material like a wild caught. This animal is typically calm. Have a water bowl and found a couple soaking. This animal is not scheduled to be bred next year but are cooling down all adults regardless - logistic purposes. Breeding is secondary at this point. We have one of those surface temp readers and got her @ 47.5 F. cooler than i had wanted.

Remember the cooler temps the slower ALL their functions are.....
I've put animals into brumation that were just turning blue and they did not shed until 6 weeks later......
If your geographic location dictates brumation I am sure you live in a cold / dry climate.......I just bet the humidity was low at those low temps.......She'll be fine if you just warm her up, soak her and peel off the stuck shed.....If she doesn't want to feed I'd put her back in brumation.......
