    Oh it's definitely crossed my mind. I've got a 21"x24" flexwatt strip that I have as backup for her cage, but I'd have to undo the whole stack to get under her cage to set it up. Room temp is about 70-72* which is a little low for my liking for the cage ambient though. Hrmmm...

    hApPiE bUrPhDaEy, PhYlLiS! She crawled out of her egg somewhere between 2/11/16-2/14/16 so I figured now is as good of a day as any. Most astonishing growth rate of any animal I've ever worked with.
    The day I got her 3/4/16, about 20" and 56grams

    Lol happy b-day Phyllis.

    On a side note, did the lower temps help with the pushing and being able to extend feeding days?

    Re: Kalatoa 100% Pure SD Retic Progression (Pic heavy...)

    I think it helped a little bit. She went to 9 days without going completely bonkers but was still pushing a little by that day. Yesterday was 5 days after eating a 4xl guinea pig and she already pooped. I could feed this animal a freaking horse and she'd poop within a week probably

    Exceptionally cool!

    She looks great.

    Wallace has his 2nd B-day June 1st. He's 6.5 - 7 feet now.

    Bummer about the pushing, I have never dealt with it. Once in a great while the carpet and boa will push but not for hunger reasons.

    Phyllis is the PERFECT size IMO.

    Well done and Happy B-day.

    It was 78* this afternoon between teaching my drawing and design classes so Phyllis got to wander in the yard for a a min... and took a huge poop like 4 minutes later. Retics...

    Still got some swollen face, which seems to be normal anymore. Gonna stuff her with guinea pig tonight and hope she goes into shed so she'll stay quiet and not push so much

    Lol yeah i tried lowering the temps for Caesar too and it didnt really do squat. If he doesnt get food within a about 10 days after eating, he goes bonkers and starts pushing and being an overall pita.

    On a plus note though, Caesar isnt mad at me anymore for messing with his face during the whole tooth through the lip fiasco. He was pissed at me for 2 days no kidding. He wouldnt greet me. He would wander away when i opened the cage to pet him. Gave me stink eye and would go in his hide. Now he is back to normal. He comes out to greet me. Last night he sat on my arm while i petted him for about 20 mins. I know snakes dont show emotion and stuff but i swear, retics come the closest to it lol.

    I love stories like this, displaying the personality of snakes.

    I'm at a loss as far as the pushing goes.

    Wallace has never pushed and I feed him about every 4 weeks.

    He's still in his smaller cage but I'm moving him soon.

    I have not had any problem snakes here. Maybe its luck or I'm somewhat dialed in. I'm not really sure .
