just a quick question, my snake shed for the first time at the end of february and is about to shed again, how often should they shed?

i got her in november and she was 8", now she is 10" if that helps..

also, when do i change her food from pinkie mice to fuzzies?

Generally speaking, snakes shed as they grow, so how often she sheds kind of depends on how much she eats & how fast she grows. Rule of thumb is, and if I'm wrong, someone will point it out for me, to feed food items no bigger than 3/4 of the biggest part of the snake's body, and at least every 5-7 days.
