He is also about to shed and the humidity isn't doing my any justice either I spray often but it dries out

He is probably very dehydrated . Imagine if you were put in such a dry environment.. only difference snakes don't drink to hydrate..which makes them very different from us and dogs , cats ect.. which also measn your snake is most likely dehydrated and you just don't realize it.




. Put a small Tupperware box in the cage filled with moist orchid moss or sphagnum moss. The snake will most likey reside in there most of the time.

In nature they don't always drink.. they get their moisture from choosing humid conditions.

A snake does mainly 2 things..it always searches for the perfect humidity and perfect temperatures.

and again do some reading here on husbandry and ethology of kinsgnakes..it is not as simple as a "pet shop tank set-up" as the pet trade and TFH books you may have read or gotten advice from.
