Have Reptile Veterinary Questions? Ask a Reptile Expert.
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in reptiles and reptile rescue.
Please do not use acetone at all near the snake. It will burn the snake. You can use plain old Mayonnaise to get the snake unstuck. Slather the area stuck in some Mayo and allow it to soak in. It will help loosen the glue. You can then work the envelope off.
Checking in this afternoon to see how the snake was doing. Please let me know if the Mayonnaise seemed to loosen the glue. Please let me know how things are going.
