    Yeah Caesar usually stills looks for more food even after 2 smalls. Heck he looks for food 2 days after eating. Tonight, I slid open his door to change his water. He popped his head out of his cool hide and looked at me. I reached in, grabbed his water bowl and went and washed it and refilled it. Came back and he was sitting on the warm side which is the door and side he gets fed on. He was all looking at my hand and the water bowl lol. After being all excited for about 5 secs and then seeing no food was coming, just a water bowl, he turned around and went back into his cool hide lol. He is shedding so he's not too social at the moment but he is social enough for food.

    Caesar progression thread.

    Lol he's way more food oriented than River. Once River goes blue she wants nothing to do with anything. She slowly starts poking her head out less and less from the beginning of her shed cycle until she finally goes blue.

    I can just picture Caesar's food face though. And the disappointment after he didn't get anything. Lol Some retics are such characters. Guess he's gotta fuel his growth somehow.

Even after 2 of them, he still doesn't seem "full" as in he doesn't retreat to hide and digest. He will sit on top of the hide and stare out the door or put his body behind his warm hide and lay his head and neck on top of the warm hide and look outside. He's probably just over 4' and probably close to 1.5 inches thick.
    According to this the rats I've been feeding Levi are considered medium. He is also just over 4' so about the same size as Caesar. With that said I'm sure he'll have no problem taking a medium

    Yeah, today I bought everyone rats and decided to weigh them all so I know exactly what I'm dealing with and if I need to give the owner of my reptile shop a bunch of grief for selling me undersized rats for overcharged prices haha. Anyways, her rats are pretty much right in the middle. Her larges are 255g, medium is 117g, and the smalls were 65g and the adult mouse I feed my dumerils was 20g. So she is safe from my rage plus she always lets me rummage through the bags of frozen feeders and pick out the ones I want lol.

    And yeah I'll give Caesar a medium next feeding. He's going into shed so I'm skipping his feeding this week as he is quiet and just sitting in his hide. I decided to give him a bigger tub so he can soak in it too and also added a silk vine above his shelf so he can have a little hiding spot up high if wanted. He popped his head out to look at the stuff and then went back in the hide lol.

    You can see the stuff here. I also gave Rosey and Vicky and Dot bigger tubs too so they can soak also if wanted. Sorry about the reflection from my beardies cage in the picture there lol.

    Caesar progression thread.

    Sauzo, This is what works great for my snakes: I size my soaking bowls as if they are hides, maybe you did too, I can't tell. And I believe it makes my snakes feel more secure, plus they can easily see 170 degrees and another 90 degrees with a slight turn of the head. This way they always know what's going on which is a good defense or for ambush. They also use the bowls even after they have splashed all of the water out.

    That's why I believe the bowls are dual purpose, soaking and as a pseudo-hide.

    I also believe the round shape helps with feeling more secure than the RB hides.

    The one thing I found that you can count on about Balls is that they are consistent about their inconsistentcy.

    I guess the 2 rat breeders I been buying from are both very generous with the weight of their rats. Some of the "smalls" I been feeding were over 100g

    You do have nice set ups. I just upgraded a couple tubs today as well. Does Caesar not eat when he's in shed?

    Re: Caesar progression thread.

    I'm digging your setup too Reinz! Are those 6ft enclosures? Where did you find the larger water bowls and are they spill proof?
