Hello all, I am 7 yrs old and just got my first snake, a juvenile ball python. it is 16 inches long. he ate his first pinkie mouse last weekend, he went right after it. as a new snake owner, I have a few questions...
1. He has been shedding for about 2 weeks! Do you need to moist them down when they shed or spray them down with water?
2. What kind of bedding do you need to put in the cage? is reptile chip bedding ok to put on the bottom of the cage?
3. Do they need a hiding place in their cage? I have a 10 gallon glass aquarium that he live in.
Thanks for any information to help me take better care of my snake!
