    Just wait till her head is the size of a shoe box. Calm or not, she will be impressive!

    A quick shot of the quarantine set up I have her in. After I am sure she is 100% healthy I will put her on cocohusk substrate and add some more things in there We just installed the perches and next week I'll be painting them a brown color just for the fun of it.

    I love it!

    Thanks for the update. That looks perfect for a snake that size, and she'll use those perches for sure.

    I'll be looking forward to the larger, adult caging when the time comes. You have the potential for a really neat display setup with that species.

    I sure hope you are able to keep this thread going for a long time. I am very excited to watch her grow up!

    Pretty girl and I too am looking forward to watching her grow up with you. As for the slow strike, that might have something to do with the manner of offering. That first strike was definitely more defensive and didn't happen until the rat crossed back toward her(vulnerable) body - you'll notice she was pulling back almost before her mouth even hit the rat with no interest in throwing coils. I'm not saying it's a bad way of offering, I use it a fair bit myself when starting defensive youngsters on f/t, but your method was more along the lines of "tease feeding" rather than "zombie dancing" trickery. It also tends to get a fair number of slower/defensive strikes before the snake gets fed up and decides to simply "kill" the prey. I reckon once she's more comfortable with you, and taking food from the tongs as soon as presented, you'll see what kind of speed she can throw behind that mouth.

    Yeah I had to 'annoy' feed her, haha. I was expecting a lot more of a feeding response, but I feel like because she is not so inclined to bite that she is also hesitant to strike at food. But I do agree once she gets used to the routine she will show me what she can really do
