    I can tell he hasn't shed cuz he doesn't have that bright coloring and he still has that dull coloring that they get

    It's been a long time since I've had a Ball Python around. I do recall that from time to time they'd have a longer than normal shed period.

    I even had one that would "eat" his sheds. The only reason I know this is.... Because I caught him in the act once. Of course, I took the shed away and gave him a rat. He still would have eaten it if I hadn't caught him.

    Here's the pictures of my catching him in the act.











    Here's the rat after I took away the shed.



    So, are you sure your Ball Python hasn't shed yet?? Watch him closely. He may still need to shed or he may have shed and eaten it.

    Either way, keep up what you're doing until you're sure.
