Reptiblr, what do you do for a living/what are you studying?

I think it’s super interesting to see what reptile enthusiasts do IRL. What do you do?

I work for a platform hosting service for video games. My real title is so specific if you googled it it would come up with my name, but I’m basically a Producer of Outsource Management and Backend Quality Assurance.

snakes also shed their digestive tract lining when they shed their skin?! i had no idea! tell us more, please?
Asked by

:

omg-snakes:

To be honest here, I’ve been told by other keepers in the hobby that snakes shed the linings of their digestive tract but in doing my own research on the subject I can find no scientific papers that confirm or deny this to be the case. It always made sense to me so I never thought to doubt it.
Now I’m doubting!

Every time I’ve personally seen a snake be treated for intestinal parasites the “post-treatment shed” was considered the time to have them re-checked to ensure that the treatment was successful. Snakes with respiratory and gastrointestinal infections are observed to shed more often, and this has anecdotally been said to have something do with attempting to heal themselves by shedding infected tissues. Additionally, they usually poop during shedding so it falls in line with the hypothesis that ecdysis includes gastrointestinal linings. There are documented cases of other animals, such as chickens, shedding their intestinal linings to help prevent and expel parasites. But again, there’s no confirmation or denial of this happening in snakes so I could be wrong. I’ve been wrong about stuff before! I’ll be wrong about stuff again!

If anybody wants a research subject for a herpetology degree, this might be a good field to investigate.
优信彩票注册网址Anybody else have any information on this?

That’s the first time I’m hearing of this, and would love to follow the conversation, even though I don’t have anything to add to it atm.

Wouldn’t their poo be different post shed then? I feed my sand boa when she’s deep in shed because she still takes food and I’ve never noticed a difference in her poop. I’d expect if she shed stomach lining it would be… gooshier?

Honest question, (no judgement), what do reptile breeders do with the normals they get when breeding?

Do they give them away? Euthanize them? Use them as feeders?
