  • [Skin] Suriname became very dull, and skin is rough

    I have a 2012 Suriname that I picked up a few weeks ago
    She is eating large rat every two weeks
    She sheaded approx 4 1/2 weeks ago
    The shead was dry and required a use of a shead aid since then her scales have rough spot( see picture)
    I noticed in the past day or so, her blood redtail is now brown, checked her eyes to see if she's going into shed and their not cloudy.
    She's in a boaphile 421D tank with 80w radiant heat panel that takes up 1/2 the tank
    Hot side mid 80s cool side 70s
    Has a soaking bowl
    She moves from the hot to cold side and doesn't favor one or the other
    Really bumped up the humidity for her
    Any help with what's going
    First picture is the way her tail originally looked

          It might have helped if you reposted the pictures. Just look at them (http://www.redtailboas.com/f18/new-s...76/#post728674). Is it possible that she could be shedding to repair the rough skin?

            This is normal. Suris go through light and dark phases. The darker phases are so dramatic that they don't even look normal. They get dark and the tails look brown. Then next thing you know, the snake is in light phase and all the pinks/reds and golden colors shine through.

              Hey I tried reposting the pictures but for some reason they keep coming up as a error when I tried loading them or that the mod needed to approve them
              Gonna try again in a bit

                No problem, that is why I added the link to the previous post with them.


                And I didn't know that some BCCs or BCIs could change colors like that. I heard that pure Hogg Islands could, but I had never seen it.

                  [MENTION=26629]Emsbuff124[/MENTION] Sorry about that. I have approved them. I could see them while I was on my phone, so I didn't even realize they were in "limbo". I will go through and move duplicated posts now so that it is easier to read.

                        Looks blue to me. Avoid handling until the shed. Bumping humidity to 70% for the next week will help.

                          Definitely in shed.

                            Yes I did just that brought the humidity up to 86ish
                            Just never seen the eyes get light pale like that
                            Like I said my ball it's so easy to tell when he's in the shed the eyes are almost white

                              86% might be too high if maintained for a long time. I would let it come down a little before spraying again. That might just be how I feel though.
