    just so you know i been feeding mine a lil differantly since my last responce to this thread and you might want to give it a try see if it works for your blood like it's worked for mine it's literly cut the poop time in half once my blood starts to eat i spray her food down till it is soaked every time and every other time she eats she poops now but i go with lil bigger prey so she eats only once every 3 weeks first week she is bulged out then second week she looks about normal the 3rd week she starts to move around more so i wait till the end of the week to feed.

    if i rember the name right nocturnal creations owner gave my the idea to feed less often but lil bigger prey per meal and it works wander guy i got mine off of last time he seen her was amassed how much she grew in the 2 months since he saw her last
    i just like to argue and get you riled up dont take it to mean i dont like you or what I'm agueing about. I'm doing it for the joy of argueing dont anybody like good old fashion debates

The only thing that has ever came out of her is pee and a ball of uric acid and this is only when I handle her. Is this normal? I know the pee is of course but are the big balls normal( they are yellow and white)? Her temp is 88 on hot side and 78 on cool side and she has plenty of room to stretch out even though I never see her come out and move around unless she is getting in her water bowl. Thanks in advance for any replies and help on this.
    my borneos do basically 4 things, sit in the water bowl, bury under the substrate, eat, and poop. the later of which happens very seldomly.
    i got my male and female in Sept of 09. the male didn't poop til the last week of January and has only pooped every 3-4 months since. the female also held out from Sept to Jan on me, and she goes a bit more frequently but it too is routinely 2-3 months.

    so in short, you have nothing to worry about

    I only have a small collection of 4 but mine poop every 3 to 4 weeks no problem. I feed a medium rat every week even to the adults. Maybe it has something to do with larger prey items?

    Re: Blood's first poop in nearly 9 months!

    I notice more frequent poops with larger prey items

    I also notice the older they get, the more frequent the movements become, not due to larger items, but as a sign to me that they dont seem to need to hold it in so much.

    Just make sure your not feeding too little or too much, watch your temps, and make sure your giving fresh water every other day and keeping the humidity and stop stressing about how often the animal is boo-boo'ing

    They'll go when they want to

She has been on a steady diet of rats every 6 or 7 days since then; hasn't pooped once since I bought her (and its almost Sept!). Needless to say, I was very happy as it was really starting to scare me. I have been worried about it for a long time. But I have heard from many many sources that its not completely uncommon for bloods to go this long. Lets hope she doesn't make a habit of it though.

    Anyway, she apparently cloned a brown version of herself. I think its about the equivalent of me passing something the size of my leg!
    This belongs in a museum, or at least in a crate somewhere in a large warehouse (like end of raiders of lost ark)
