    Re: Shayna - Our Albino Spider Ball

    Shayna did not eat today. After shed and waste the other day, she was down to 1,630G, from 1,770G before her semi-fast.

    She looked at the rat, smelled it, tasted it (with her tongue), and slithered away.

    Again, I have no doubt she will eat when ready and she's hardly wasting away. I just like to post updates and also want other people with fasting BP's to see they are not alone. This is the 5th or 6th year of fasting I've gone through with Shayna, who turns 7 in September. Neither of us sweat it too much anymore.

    That's very thoughtful...new keepers especially can feel like the only one this (fasting) is happening to, it's so stressful thinking this beautiful new creature is
    sick or something. My only real "faster" is my TX longnose snake, but my rosy boa skips many (but not all) meals in winter too...all normal & expected.
    So hang in there, everyone with a fasting snake (of any kind).

    Thanks Bogertophis!

    That's what this site is about. Sharing knowledge and being a community. If you can help one person, or one snake, etc. you've had a good day.

    Re: Shayna - Our Albino Spider Ball

    Shayna has eaten 3 rats in a row now (every two weeks offering). The fast is over!!!!!!

    She had a medium rat - about 100G, when she first ate first this year. However, I've offered small rats since, about 70G each, in the hopes of getting her to eat (close to) every meal this spring, summer, and fall.

    She did gobble down mediums most of last summer, but I want to see the impact of a slightly smaller meal on her.
