In this picture she is fresh from a bath and I have just helped her shed. Wild snakes are better able to shed because the rub against a rough terrain like stones and sticks but captive snakes live in nice smooth terrariums. Jaya has always had trouble shedding. She usually scrapes off the dead skin from her face but will wear it like a hat until I help her. She is a very lazy snake.
The shedding process for her involves a nice warm bath then the skin rolls right off like a condom leaving her fresh and beautiful.
