The problem is, I am moving house on the 9th. There is no way I can change the date to move sooner or later.
Everything I've read says you should not handle a snake when they're about to shed, that it can hurt them. I have never picked up my snake in this pre-shed phase. What would you suggest? Is there some way I could handle him (I am planning to transfer him to a shoe box with holes in it to travel) that would minimise any possibility of injury?
