Post hatching / birth shedding

Postby CeciliaWagner » Mon Jul 22, 2019 9:45 am

Hi everyone! :D

I am a snake enthusiast / researcher hoping to get some information on post hatching shedding days of neonate snakes.
I am particularly interested in finding out how many days it takes for different snakes species to have their first shedding after hatching / birth (postnatal ecdysis).
I would really appreciate any information on any and all snake species.

E.g. Corn snakes take 7 - 10 days to shed
Western Hognose snakes shed within hours after hatching...

Thanks! :-D
