    pink belly scales

    My ball python, Isis, has a pinkish tint on her belly scales. I'm pretty sure she didn't have this before, is this a sign of something wrong? I'm pretty sure my setup is correct.. at the moment it's 82 on the cool side, 92 on the warm side. I'm not sure what, if anything, I'm doing wrong, or what factors affect scale color. I'd appreciate any feedback. Thanks!

    Re: pink belly scales

    is it possible that she's going into shed? their bellies tend to turn pink right before they go into a shed cycle...

    Re: pink belly scales

    Hah, wow, I feel dumb. I've had my girl for about two years but I never really noticed pink belly scales when she was about to shed. Thanks!
