    Re: Shayna - Our Albino Spider Ball

    Okay, so following a GIANT POOP BOMB delivery, she has gained a little weight, but not so much.

    As said, her previous high was 1620G and usually stayed around 1600G, give or take 10-20G by summers end.

    I weighed her today, empty, and she's 1640G.

    I don't think 30-40G is significant, but it's also earlier in the summer still. We will see where she ends up.

    Still convinced, by eating patterns alone, if nothing else, that she is very happy in her new home!

    Here are two (eh) pictures from today. Not the best lighting or picture quality, but she's got a nice shape to her.

    Re: Shayna - Our Albino Spider Ball

    Me and my big mouth!

    Shayna refused her rat yesterday!

    Oh well, I guess she's still a BP!

    She didn't strike (which is normal for her) and I put down near her. She smelled and even grabbed for a second with her mouth.

    I left it overnight hoping she would eat, but, alas, it was there this morning.

    She's still doing great and I am not worried at all about a most meal. I am just wondering if I should have wrote that she hasn't been refusing much .

    Thanks Zincubus!

    LOL, it doesn't matter, she does what she wants.

    I prepare the rats exactly the same way every time; properly defrosted, properly warmed, etc.

    Last feeding she struck (which she rarely does) before I even had a chance to shake it or put it down for her to pull in her house. This time, nothing. She's a BP and an odd duck, what can I do?

    She's happy and healthy and she refuses meals sometimes and fasts in the winter. That's what she does. I have given up worrying about it and just roll with it.

    Re: Shayna - Our Albino Spider Ball

    A couple shots I got of Shayna before taking her out today to clean up a mess she made and change her water bowls.

    They are iPhone shots, but the lighting was good in her tank.

    Re: Shayna - Our Albino Spider Ball

    Shayna's rubbing/scale issue seems to have stabilized. I think I dodged a bullet there and I am very relieved.

    She happily ate a medium rat tonight. That makes 4 successful feedings in the last 5 attempts. That's pretty good for her and she seems to be doing great. Very happy.

    Re: Shayna - Our Albino Spider Ball

    On 7-19-18, I wrote about how great the Boaphile tank is for Shayna and how well she is doing and how she is adding weight.

    All those still hold true.

    The Boaphile is fantastic for temp and humidity control and Shayna never has been happier. She eats virtually every time I offer since her fast ended (I offer a medium rat every two weeks), with an occasional refusal.

    I weighed her today, totally dry, and she's 1,690G. WOW! Her peak weight over the past two years was 1,600G. I think she is really happy and doing great. She turns 6 years old in less than a week and I regret not getting her the best tank that I could afford earlier.

    However, it worked out, because everyone got upgraded at once and the tank tower is working out great.

    I am so glad Shayna is doing so well and seems happy and adjusted.

    Here are some pictures of the happy and healthy girl.
