I got to watch Charlie shed this morning!

Charlie shedding!It's not the first time Charlie has shed since I adopted her last fall, but it's the first time I got to watch. She started slightly when I went downstairs and turned on the light, but kept on about her business. Conveniently, my new Nikon pocket camera was on the basement table, so I was able to capture a few minutes of video as well as a couple of stills.

When she was done, I was able to immediately remove the still-damp shed from her tank, which means I also have the first nearly intact skin. I've mostly found several pieces by the time I get there. This time, all but her front few inches ended up in a single piece. Holding it up in front of me, it was nearly as tall as I was, so I guess she's at least six feet long now!
