GloWorm is shedding and he retained an eyecap. Shedding is a very cranky time for snakes, and Green Tree Pythons are notorious for not being handleable or even workable. That dear beast understood I was trying to help him and held still while I misted warm water under his shed skin to loosen it up for him. A snake letting you near his head is the ultimate in trust and my own eyes got misty because he really is an extraordinary animal.
I think we got to it in time to loosen it up and have him shed it naturally. Snakes really are "lower animals" but there is still a spark of divinity in them-I really believe that because I've seen them respond to honest sincere intention to help-and they certainly don't have the brainpower to process that. But they do have the soulpower.
