I’ve been keeping Colubrids (successfully) for more than 40 years and never seen anything quite like this before. I recently acquired several c/b hatchling z. multicincta. They very quickly and one-by-one developed what looks like a pretty serious skin problem. Their scales dimpled and their belly almost looks a little moisture blistered. The eye caps turned dull and scarred looking. They continue to feed but keep going blue. Some have shed 3 times over a 5 week period! The one that showed these symptoms first and subsequently shed 3 times so far seems to show some improvement. The body scales seem to look normal and the head plates smoothed out a little but the belly scales still look “rumpled” and scarred. Obviously I’m pretty concerned because not only are these some pretty cool little guys but I paid a pretty penny for them too. Any constructive input would be helpful as the last thing I want to do is lose any of them.
