    Well she's got some very bright yellow on her. And that's great she can take credit for getting you back into reptiles too. There's no escape now, hahahaha!

    Re: Shayna - Our Albino Spider Ball

    Shayna is doing awesome and is still eating (rare this late into the winter). Having said that, she ate somewhat sporadically the past few months because of construction in the basement/reptile area. So that might play a part.

    In any event, she's looking great and still a sweetie to handle. I think she "likes" being handled the least of all the snakes, but she tolerates me pretty well.

    Oh, I don't know...she looks pretty relaxed to me. One of my young (2.5 years old) rat snakes still puts up a huge fuss when I pick her up- she'll often thrash wildly- & then wrap really tight on my arm like we're locked in battle! She & her opposite (overly-mellow) 2 siblings are each about 4' long now, so she has enough length to really be a "tourniquet" when she does that, lol. And only after she goes thru some drama, then she calms down & truly seems to like being handled- it's been a long time since I've had any nips from her (not many, in total, either) and she's really making great progress now- I enjoy holding her because once she "remembers" she's safe with me, she just has so much personality- but she's an odd snake, for sure. I have to keep a light touch- she's hyper-sensitive, & the challenge she presents keeps it interesting. I wouldn't want all snakes to be the same & puppy-dog mellow- some of them need to keep us on our toes.

    Re: Shayna - Our Albino Spider Ball

    Shayna gobbled down another small rat today. I am wondering if she will fast at all this winter. She seems to know what she needs and when she eats regularly throughout spring, summer, and fall, fasts like clockwork. This year, with the flood and then construction in the basement/reptile area and not getting her regular meal every 2 weeks, I am wondering if she "knows" that it's better to eat if food is offered/available since she didn't pack on the weight this year.

    Could be she senses that she has some weight to catch up on- not that we'll ever know for sure- but a couple of mine that go off eating for a while every winter don't seem to care whether they start off lighter than usual, they just fast anyway because they sense the seasonal changes. My elderly TX longnose snake is one of "those"- every year he eats a little less & is a little thinner than I like him to be going into his winter fast. I "should" cool him down to further slow his metabolism, except that has risks too, so I don't. But I think Shayna is probably just fine.

    Thank you! She's a beautiful lady.

    I haven't weighed her in a few months. My best guess is about 1.9kg. Her low for the year (after winter fast) was 1.8kg and she's put on some weight since.
