Sorry I should have stated that the heat pad is heat controlled at around 28 degrees.
You CAN do it.

NEWB, I would not worry about the cornsnake not shedding properly the first time. Just make sure all the shedding is off.

Most snakes will have a bad shed the first time in a new home / enclosure. The next time should be better.

What you could do is get some spaghum moss, dampen it and put it in another hide for her (corns should have two hides at least, one on the warm and one on the cool side of the cage). Do this when she is close to shedding again.

Where would I get this?
