Just to give an update. As I said before he just never seemed to take to the box at all. I started just putting him in the box myself. At first he would stay for short periods then come back out. Each day that I held him I would put him back in the box. I then tried just leaving the lid loose and rather than depend on the hole at the top, I left about a 2" crack in it. Just set the lid on and slide it back 2 inches. Upon doing this I hardly ever see him out of the box now. I'm not sure what difference that made but it did something.

We've gone through a few sheds now and the skin on the eyes is not an issue any longer. Finally getting a normal shed from him. The entire thing is in tact. At least I hope that's normal. Looks like all my other snakes now.

Thanks for the help on this. Now if I can just figure out how often he should be allowed to eat. Lol. I think he would consume 10 mice every day if I let him and anything else I toss in there. Just kind of been feeding him 2-3 times a week and watching his body to make sure he doesn't look fat. About the best I know to do. He is a little over a year old now. Is it unrealistic to ask about how big he should be at this time? Maybe that will give me an idea if I'm over feeding or underfeeding I hope.
