    Another Progression Thread

    I know, I know! Another progression thread! I just couldn't help myself! I already have a thread on here but that was more dedicated to selecting my first carpet not necessarily focusing on her! I just can't help myself but to tell everyone about her! (it's like I've had my first child!)
    Anyway without further ado, a picture overload of Xena (zen-nah) the CCP:
    Adoption Day! Bringing her home:

    After giving her a mouse for her first feed I wanted to get her on rats asap. Here she is smashing her first rat with no issue:

    During handling she began rubbing her nose and head on me, applying quite a bit of pressure! I placed her back in the viv and she continued, I was getting concerned until I realised she was starting her shed! Here she is looking rather sweet with a little 'hood' of shed:
    After she allowed me to watch her shed I took my chance to weigh her 'empty'. A solid 100g!:
    Her shed measured in at 91cm which is just shy of 3ft! (bigger than I thought).
    Last but not least, my favourite picture! Shame the quality isn't there:
    Sorry for the mass of pictures... I'm afraid there will be a lot more to come

    I was so pleased she took the rat first time! Thought I'd have to scent it or warm it up!

    Maybe it's a carpet thing, mine went into shed within a week of coming home as well

    She's looking great!

    So she took 2 rats on Tuesday and was still looking a little 'full' today! I may offer a smaller rat a couple days later than normal on the next feed! Little piggy!
    Tigerhawk- I definitely want another carpet when I have the room!

    Shedding is clearly a tiring thing! ... Or maybe she was fed up of the camera being shoved in her face!

    That's how I knew mine had had enough when I took him out: he struck at the camera instead of me
