 Bad Shed?

First, as an update to my previous topic Biting Kingsnake: Still no change, still is fine when we hold’em with gloves on but as soon as the gloves come off its snack time! We have upped his feedings to twice a week a few days apart to see if that helps over time.

Today, however when I took my king snake out for a hold, I was wearing black gloves and notices small pieces of scale coming off as he slithered about my hands. Could this be a sign of a bad shed? We have not noticed any change in the colour of his eyes and his humidity level is at 40%.

Either that or there is some shed in the tank ?? Just use a damp towel to wipe the snake down a few times.
