    My Ball Pythons Eyes and Skin!!!

    I owe a Ball python, I recently put her in a 20 gallon tank. In fact I recently courageously noticed her belligerently leaved eye has a dent, it looks immediately cracked. As you may expect her right eye is round but the left one really looks hastily dented and both of them look really cloudy.
    What can I do? Really the left eye concerns me it looks almost broken!!!
    Presently also her skin is really dry, espically by her mouth. What can I do?

    I really would re-check the humidity in the tank...

    Sounds like she is either in a shed or has a retained eye-cap that should come off in the next shed...raise the humidity a little and you should be fine.

    If it's a retained eye cap, best not to try and take it off yourself, you could damage your snakes eye, i have seen MANY people do this with tweezers, and such, PLEASE let the VET take it off if it doesn't come off!

    the cloudy ness in the eyes most of the time means that it will shed.. when you can move youre snake to a 40 gallon tank, raise the humidity, and our snake had this too.. all it is, is the eyecapsule it hasen't come off yet. go to a vet to have it removed if it is not gone after shedding is done!
