GIANT ANACONDA Sheds Skin;
Anacondas, like all snakes, shed their skin. We humans replace our skin, too, but our skin cells slough off a little at a time. Snakes shed their skin all in one piece, sliding out of it like one long sock
When anacondas are babies they shed more often (up to twice a month). As they get older and their growing slows down, they shed less frequently, unless they are in a rapid shed cycle where they shed immediately after finishing a shed.
Rapid shed cycles can occur if the snake has damaged scales or other physical issues like pregnancy or a shed that didn’t come off quite right. Ashley and Kathleen usually shed between 5 and 8 times per year.
snake typically remains opaque for about 4 to 7 days after which the eyes become clear and actual shedding takes place 4 to 7 days after that. Snakes shed by rubbing their nose and face against objects in the cage.
Shedding can be uncomfortable for snakes and can make them feel anxious. Once you have noticed your snake starting to shed, you should minimise your amount of contact with them to only when it is absolutely necessary
