    First BP.

    It's looking fabulous !!

    It maybe worth trying a couple of branches / fake logs in there as they love climbing !!

    Lovely looking set up though !


    Gorgeous dogs , great choices

    It appears that your baby is in shed, that may be why it is hiding an awful lot. The opaque blue eyes. The dull color of the pattern. It's obvious that snake is in the process of a shed. I can't remember if it was it was your thread that said she was being nippy, but they do not like being handled during the shed process. Their vision is not as good, and they just wanna marinate in that humidity, until they are ready to reveal the pretty new skin. Keep the humidity at 65 to%70 as much as possible during the week of shed

    I'd agree on everything above plus as soon as the colour returns and the eyes clear up there's a few days in between that and the actual shedding of the skin and that's the time to up the daily spraying of the Viv ..

    Then after the shed it will look fabulous , be far more active and won't be as nippy / anxious ..

    First Ball Python

    I bought a Super Pastel Ivory BP the other day, I've been keeping an eye on the temps of the tank (40 gallon breeder) my warm side is at 90 right now and it usually ranges from 80 when i have the light off and 85-90 when the light is on. My cool side im having trouble with keeping the temperature where it needs to be, its at 71/72 but she spends most of her time on the cool side until yesterday I bought a hide for her warm side where she hide for a few hours then went back to the cool side im just a little worried the cool side temperature is too low.

    Thanks for the info!!!!!

    Just today I checked on her and the eyes were black so I looked for some shed. I got nervous cause I didn't know what was happening. These info really calms me down.

    Re: First BP.

    Thanks for the comments, I see some interest on the display (much appreciated!).

    It is all plastic, really inexpensive. For the hides I went to the aquarium side of the store, and pick a couple of decors that could use as hiding spots, just used a light sandpaper to smooth plastic chips from the edges. The other extra is a zoomed large vine folded in half and twisted. It's all in the lighting

    Cool

    I just came home from work, and I went just to check on my girl.

    I wasn't going to hold her because she was on shedding process, just to see where she was and what was she doing. I was very nervous because I wasn't sure if humidity was perfect for her shed and have read so much problems for shedding, etc. Remember it's my first reptile ever and obviously our first shed.

    So long story short, I pick in her favorite hide and!!! I found my baby snake lying in her house next to a huge ball of gray knot of old skin!!! Awesome!!! She made a one piece perfect shed just overnight!!!




    God!!! her new colors are so bright!!!



    Look at those eyes!!!


    Her skin is so smooth!!!




    Thanks everyone for all the good advices, and information, and everything... will keep posting some more fotos from time to time.

    Please do share yours here!!! I love to see other snakes too.
