    Re: Shayna - Our Albino Spider Ball

    Shayna dropped a huge bomb and weighed in, dry, at 1,840G.

    She looks great and is due to be offered food Sunday.

    Re: Shayna - Our Albino Spider Ball

    Shayna refused a F/T small rat tonight. She didn't even come out of her hide.

    A) She's still in, at least, a partial winter fast.

    B) She's only been in the new digs for about ten days or so.

    I am not worried and do not plan to offer again for about 3 weeks.

    Re: Shayna - Our Albino Spider Ball

    I offered Shayna a F/T small rat tonight, and she didn't come out of her hide right away, so I left it for her.

    I just checked and it's gone! I think we may have broken the winter fast.

    I've had her take a rat a few times over the years and not actually eat it, but that's rare. If that's the case, I'll advise, otherwise, assume she's at least taken this one.

    I should mention, for those who haven't followed the thread, that Shayna is an odd eater sometimes. Sometimes she strikes, but much of the time, she wants it left for her and she will take it when I leave her alone. She's shy.

    Hey, it doesn't bother me. As long as she eats, I don't care her approach!

    Having said that, I have documented that her winter fasts, at year 7 of having her, don't bother me too much. Still, it's nice when she does eat, especially in new digs. I am glad she is settling in.

    Re: Shayna - Our Albino Spider Ball

    Shayna came out to play today. She did eat her rat this past Sunday and I decided to give her some exercise. I don't handle her much while she's fasting, but this could be a false start too, so I won't handle her like crazy, just 1X a week now until she's eating regularly.

    Thanks Kam. She's a great snake. It's good she's eating again, not that I worry too much about her when she fasts, especially with good weight on her. However, still nice to see her eating.

    Re: Shayna - Our Albino Spider Ball

    So last rat was a "false start." She refused last night. I am not concerned at all, but I think it's helpful to other keepers to know that they can start eating without it being consistent after a fast.

    Her body condition is great and she does not appear to be going into shed. I think it's just Shayna being a BP.

    Re: Shayna - Our Albino Spider Ball

    Shayna shed last night and dropped some waste. That explains why she didn't eat the other night (maybe ).

    She's 1,800G dry now.

    Re: Shayna - Our Albino Spider Ball

    Shayna happily ate a F/T small rat tonight.

    She's 2/3 last three feedings (2 weeks apart) and only refused when in shed.
