    Thanks. He's only had 1 shed too but I've only had him a little over 2 weeks so i'm going to guess he's going to shed soon. He is growing like a weed though being fed 2 adult mice every 4-5 days. He was stretched out in his cage last night and he is probably close to 4' now and his turds are close to 5" lol. He is an eating and pooping machine lol.

    Re: Caesar progression thread.

    Such fast growth from such relatively small snakes! Phyllis has been shedding about every 3-4 weeks like clockwork. I imagine she'll go blue this week sometime. She's usually in blue for 4-5 days and sheds the 5th day. It was every 3 weeks as a hatchling and would shed about 3-4 days after turning blue.

    Yeah Caesar sheds pretty fast too. After blue, he sheds within a day or 2. Had to clean his cage since he dropped a monster deuce and piss the aspen soaked up lol. Put him in his little tub with a hide and he enjoyed watching me lol. Then after I was done, I picked him up and he looked around on me a little and then curled up under my hand and went to sleep. I'm acyually typing this while he is sleeping on me lol. So far he is rivaling my boas on mellowness.

    Here's some new pictures of Caesar after lights went out and he decided it was time to use the shelf lol.
    He's getting so big.

    Looks like I missed this one.

    He looks great and sounds like my guy. I'm rather pleased with the ease of handling so far. I'm always ready for him to snap, but that is just because he's new and I'm not used to him.

    I'm glad you have a male and I like his name. I've said this before, but I'll repeat it. I'm very happy to see a group of us that all have SD, or SD/Dwarf crosses that were acquired at roughly the same time.

    My guy is still in quarantine and I don't have a real cage for him like your nice AP cage. I suspect I'll let him take the Pro-Line from the royal for a bit and then get my Monster Cages big boy cage this spring or summer.

    If these guys/girls see 9 or 10 feet we'll have a lot of snake to handle.

    They are much, much different than anything I've ever worked with.

    Caesar looks very well adjusted in his new cage.

    Lol yeah. I poached this AP cage from Dottie. I feel bad as I swear she misses her shelf. She was always trying to climb the back wall but I think now she realizes its gone so now she stares out of the front lol. I'll have to either pick her up as well as Luna and Allison 3 T10s or just order T25s for the 2 boas and retic and then just move the other 3 into the T10s. Just the T25s loaded with all options I want plus shipping are a killer. For less than half the price and much faster timewise, I can just order 3 more loaded T10s.

    And yeah Caesar only got angry once and that when I tried to use a small pvc tube to wake him up and kind of scoot him forward to pick him up. He really didn't like that and actually hissed lol. So I have since switched and just a twisted up paper towel to rub on his head and neck to let him know i'm there and he is much more relaxed with that lol. He's never struck at me. He has struck at his rats and mice like crazy lol. He really likes to eat. Got all excited last feeding and ate the weaned rat butt first.

    I have no idea really how big this guy is going to grow. Kris said 5-7' with normal feedings. I have also heard the first 2 years are when they really grow so I guess we'll see when he hits 1 year old. So far, he's almost 4'.

    Yeah get a Monster cage so I can bug you on how good they are lol. And make sure to get a shelf. I'm sure your guy would love one as much as Caesar loves his lol. When hes not busying sitting in his nest on top of the flexwatt, he's usually up on the shelf relaxing.

    I agree that it will be fascinating to see how all these SDs will turn out. You are doing service to people who are interested in them.

    Back tracking a bit.

    I agree they shed fast once blue, or at least when I notice it.

    Seemed to be much faster than any of my other species here.

    Nice guy! All you people with your SD crosses...you're going to make it so hard to ignore them. :/ I can't house a bunch of standard-sized retics but I could house a bunch of retics 12' or under...of course, not in this trailer as I'm near capacity in my allotted rooms, but we'll eventually get a nice sized house.

    River loves her shelf, too! She comes out to bask under the heat panel all the time, and now that she's outgrown her hides that's where she spends most of her time.

    As far as shedding, she takes about the same time as my other snakes (1-2 weeks). She moves through her blue phases a tad quicker, but takes a lot longer to actually get to her blue phase. I generally track shedding time from the very first sign of shed. She starts hiding out of sight around day 4-6 of her shed cycle and takes about that long to go blue, that's the best way to tell she's going to shed if I'm doubting my eyes. If she's shedding, she won't come and greet me, and she gets less and less enthusiastic about leaving her hideaways each day until she completely stops coming out.
