    Lazy girl has had her head sitting there for the last 10 minutes without moving.
    1 more ounce and she will have broke into the 6 pounds area. She’s a little chunk.

    Fresh shed on my girl. She’s dancing around 6# now. She was just over before passing a couple huge urates and shedding.

    I still need to change out the bedding as I’m using aspen now and it’s stabilizing at a low humidity even with 2 large water bowls. But here is how her Kitty’s viv is set up now. Any upgrades you all can think of other than going to a coconut or cypress bedding that’ll hold the humidity higher.
    Oh and she is a bit over 6.5 pounds and about 50-52” long now. Seems like eating a 250g rat every 2 weeks and she is gaining about 1/2 pound every 2 months. She already feels big, I can’t wait to see how big she seems once she crosses 10#. Maybe by then my male Tom will be eating consistently again as he has gone off feed again.

    A litttle Miss Kitty update. Her viv set up is working well. And she uses her hides all the time. She didn’t eat for about a month as she was in shed and didn’t want food and it took her a solid month to go through her shed cycle. I fed her 350g worth of rat the next feed day after shedding. But she is still slowly but surely gaining weight, a little over 7.5 pounds now. She feels good and thick, but strong when picked up. She definitely doesn’t like being picked up, but never strikes or hisses. Just the occasional huff when I wake her up. But she’s good for being out up to an hour before getting irritable. She’s is still my favorite to handle or all 10 noodles, (though if ball pythons are noodles, these short tails are sausages). Can’t wait till my little male Tom gets to her size too. Though he is a picky eater and growing REALLY slow by comparison.

    Thanks for looking,
    Kyle

    I finally got around to getting Kitty into some coconut. With aspen I had been fighting humidity all winter. I should’ve got her in it months ago. I had been keeping 2 large tubs of water. Patches of sphagum moss and spraying twice per day just to keep things close to good. It took 3 bricks of husks to get a good layer. She should start looking better now

    She's looking great, she's got gorgeous color and pattern on her. I feel you on the humidity battle, my heater thermostat died and my humidifier has been acting up so this has been a rough winter for my snakes trying to keep humidity up, I use paper now because it's free for me and easier but it sucks for holding moisture.

    she looks SOO much better on the coconut. Humidity was at 80% this morning. Her head looks so much brighter. Especially against a dark back ground.
