 Need help please! Tape stuck on baby retic

The other day my baby retic got out of her cage by getting through a hole drilled through the back of the cage or a plug and the wire that was going thru it was held by relfective heavy duty tape and a piece fell on the floor of the cage and somehow she got it on her skin and theres no way i can pull it off without ripping the skin, what can i do to get it off ???? can i feed her still or will that end up tearing her skin when it stretches?? Please any help would be great

the only thing i can think of is put him in a tub of water and let him soak.provide a rock or branch to prevent drowning

vegatble oil...olive oil ...corn oil... all these will break the adhesive down...apply the oil liberally...work it under the tape with a Q tip or old tooth brush...allow it too stay on as long as needed...24 hrs if you must, the oil is harmless.

After the tape is removed you can gently wash the snake with a mild shampoo. Baby shampoo or a very diluted(watered down) regular shampoo.
