I purchased Demona, my female MBK from a breeder this September at the Sacramento Reptile Expo. I have only owned Cornsnakes up until this point so I did some research on MBKs before purchasing her. She's a great eater, I feed her a f/t mouse pinkie every 7 days (the past two weeks I've fed her 2). She's around a foot long and still under a year old but I feel like she should have shed at least once since I've gotten her... It's been about 3 months. She's housed in a standard sized aquarium currently (10 gallon I think?) kept at the appropriate temp. She does rub her head against the sides sometimes when she's out exploring so she's starting to get a nose rub and that's what started my concerns about her not shedding. Does she need a bigger enclosure? Am I not feeding her enough? What am I doing wrong?
