    Is so cool to lead the next generation into the love of herps. Nice looking albino as well. Keep up the good work.

Obviously, Meghan didn't have as much responsibility/freedom with her or the other reptiles when she was younger. She's 7 now and I am allowing her to hold the snakes now (while supervised).

    Re: Shayna - Our Albino Spider Ball

    Going through some old photos and found one of Shayna the day I got her at just under 200G.

    So cute! She's grown quite a bit! She also has lost all the white that she had on her sides. She's now just different shades of yellow with a little white around her belly and on her belly.

    Had my Buddy, Dan, visit for the first time in about 8 months. He loves the reptiles. Here are some shots of him with Shayna.

    Re: Shayna - Our Albino Spider Ball

    Shayna has been doing great. She turns 6 years old September 1st of this year and is going strong.

    She fasted for 5 months this past winter (pretty normal for her) and went from 1600G down to 1430G. Since February, she's been eating most meals offered and has only refused one of her past 5 (she eats a medium rat every other week). Before last meal she was back to 1600G and looking happy and healthy, as always.

    Katie and I got a new addition last week, Solana the Scaleless Sunglow Motley Corn baby, and I spent some quality time with Shayna today so she didn't feel left out .

    Here are a couple of overexposed selfies with me and her.

    Re: Shayna - Our Albino Spider Ball

    Katie held Shayna for a little while tonight and I got a couple of good shots of her (Shayna - Katie was very casual and didn't want pictures of her on the internet from tonight).

    Re: Shayna - Our Albino Spider Ball

    I feel I've been neglecting Shayna, on the forum that is, with the new addition of Solana, and Behira growing so much and so fast!

    Shayna shed last night and I wanted to post some (crappy iPhone pictures) and update.

    Shayna will be 6 years old on September 1st of this year (2018). She has fasted ever winter for the past 3 years (maybe 4 - I'll have to check my records) for about 4-5 months and loses about 6-8% of her body weight.

    The highest I've weighed Shayna in the past is about 1620G. She averages about 1450G or so after her winter fast and then gains it all back during the summer.

    Today Shayna weighed in at 1750G (although she is due for a big old poop). I still figure she's 1650G+.

    She's been eating regularly, a medium rat every 2 weeks, since the end of her fast in the end of February, with only two skipped/refused meals that entire time.

    I attribute a lot of this to my new (well, now 8 months old) Boaphile tanks. Temps are better controlled with more gradual gradients then her old setup (highs and lows are similar, but again, more gradual gradients with less fluctuation - the tanks are so well insulated) and humidity is definitely better.

    By far these are the best tanks I have ever owned, and it shows with Shayna. She now eats as frequently as ever, sheds perfectly and regularly, and seems, overall, really "happy" and healthy.

    To be clear, I've had zero health issues with Shayna since I got her at 200G and 5 months. The old setup was suffice, but she really seems to be thriving now and I couldn't be happier.

    I tried to save space, more than money, initially, and didn't research all the options, but when I got Behira, needed a BIG tank, and stackable. That's how I ended up with the Boaphile tanks. I have zero regrets. Seeing her doing better than ever makes me really happy.

    Whatever you decide to get, Boaphile, AP, etc, just do it right. Get the best thermostats, heating elements, right size tank, etc. It makes a huge difference.

    Here are the pictures.

    I love Shayna. She's a great snake and great snake ambassador!

    She is the snake that got me back into snake keeping after my transplant. I had been told to get rid of my reptiles, and re-homed my two corn snakes prior to my kidney transplant. My Beardie, George, RIP, my ex said she would take care of, but of course didn't. So I ended up taking care of him anyway. Between that and a lot of research, I realized with proper precautions, no reason why I couldn't keep snakes and I regretted my knee-jerk reaction to the doctors lack of knowledge.

    She's really calm and predictable and so beautiful. She's almost fluorescent in person. Some of the outside shots get that, a little, but not all of it. Just like cameras tend not to do a good job with Behira's iridescent skin/scales.

    Shayna means beautiful in Yiddish and I think it fits her perfectly.
