Thank you for your question. Depending on the age of the shed skin, it's possible the snake could still be around. If the skin is very dry and breaks apart easily, then it is an old shed, and the snake has most likely moved on. If the skin was moist when you found it, or is reasonably pliable and doesn't break apart too easily, then it's a more recent shed. Still, it doesn't mean that the snake is still in the house.

Where in your house did you find the shed skin?
