    More update photos!

    I took some photos of her in the sunlight filtered through the plastic over the windows (and with the sun at an angle so it wasn't shining full blast in the snake room), and these photos show her off a bit better. I'll be so glad when I can take her outside into the shade again, it should make her colors pop even more.


    She's starting to make weaned rats look small, but she's got a long way to go yet before I'll feel comfortable putting her on smalls. I think she'll actually make it onto smalls by the time she turns 2, though. I didn't think she would at first, but she's truly growing on her weaned rats vs the jumbo mice. Yesterday's feeding was the first one on weaned rats that was spaced out by 3 weeks, the rest were 4 weeks. It would have been 2 weeks, but I was basically constantly asleep the entire week I was supposed to feed her. I think I've figured out a rhythm now, though.

    Nymeria has grown quite a bit since I last updated. Her last weight was 827 grams last month, and she hit 4' exactly about a month before that. She's been eating a small rat every 2-3 weeks for quite awhile now, but she may be ready for some small medium soon. The regular smalls still leave a bit of a bump, though.

    Here's a few more recent photos.



    Although it's much more subtle, even albinos have iridescence!





    These are the most recent photos:

    Really like these Sunglow, really pretty snake. Itís definitely going to be next in my collection. Started reading this thread and jumped ahead just to see latest pics. Lot of great information, feeding is something Iím paying attention to and have read some great stuff. Nymeria looks great and ultimately I want my Hypo to look that healthy as well as any future Boas. I have watched a few you tube videos and I can see how Boas become overweight. Look forward to seeing how Nymeria grows.

    She looks AMAZING! Awesome colors and great body structure. That's the strong healthy look I'm shooting for with my boas as well.

    Thanks Jakethesnake and El-Ziggy! She definitely is coming around nicely, started out as early as possible on a good schedule, and that's helped her to maintain a much boxier shape. With the way she's putting on weight lately, I hope to see a spurt in length, too.

    Re: Female sunglow poss het anery

    I believe the last time I weighed her, she actually broke the 1,000 gram mark! Sheís also reached/passed the 4í mark, and will be moving up to small medium rats here soon, but the regular smalls still leave a small bump as of now. Iím giving her the smallest of the mediums every few feedings to help her along.

    Here she is in shed just over 2 weeks ago.



    This was taken today.



    She had a piece of aspen stuck in her mouth, and was not happy about having her mouth opened to remove it. Iíll check her mouth again in a day or two, and here and there over the next week or two, and make sure thereís no lasting damage. Iíll want to get her to the vet at any sign of infection.

    Iíll be very glad to switch her back to EcoEarth now that I can use a space heater and dry everything out. The humidity here has been so ridiculously high all year that even bone dry EcoEarth caused intense condensation. Sometimes even the aspen wasnít enough to dry things out.
