hello all, I have a young unsexed bell albino enigma. Just shed about 2 weeks ago, has not eaten since. I would not really be concerned but its tail is really skinny(was a regrown so kinda small anyway) Im hoping i can get some advice before its too late, my questions are.
1) is there a way to force feed if need be? (Have had to do with baby ball pythons and such)
2) I have tried warm baths but, is there a better way to get shed off toes?
3) is there a way to promote eating or get the little one to eat, or a supplement i can use.
thank you all so much for any and all advice I can get.

1. do not force feed yet, try using a stimulant for them.
I found repta boost works well

2, q tip with warm water. or a tupperware container on the warm side. poke some holes in the top. and put him in his own personal sauna for a bit. Ensure temps and air flow are well.

3. look at number 1. Also grub pie might help
