N=26 individuals.

Each snake was observed for a period of 7 days before (Pre-shed) and 7 days following (Post-shed) the first postnatal ecdysis.

P values indicate the outcome of Wilcoxon signed-rank tests of the null hypothesis that the probabilities of snakes using the wet or dry container tend to remain the same following ecdysis.
