    Lol I hear ya. Up to you though. If you don't need/want it, I have no fear I can sell it locally haha. Wish the Herpstat 6 came in redline

    lol I'll think about it for sure. I don't need it right away but I'd rather have a herpstat than the jumpstart that I have running Gerald's cage, especially once I get Phyllis a new t13 or t25 and move Gerald into her T8. I'll keep the jumpstart as a backup or use it to control my room radiator on the lower power setting during colder months. I really wish they made everything in the redline model as well
    (Sorry for derailing your thread a bit stearns! )

    Haha me too. I like the Redline with the black cages. I thought about maybe waiting also for Herpstat 6 redline but I doubt they will do it as they still haven't done a herpstat 4 in redline

    Tina shed and pooped tonight, surprisingly skipped her small rat. I didn't offer it last week because she just started her shed cycle.

    Best part about Gene is he has no problem eating a medium then a small.

    And on a side note, Caesar has been seeming happy with medium rats now. I backed him down from the larges. Going to try a medium rat every 10 days. He has seemed to mellow out a lot from the food drive. I think he was growing so wanted more food. He seems to be filling out now more and not really gaining length...at the moment lol.

    NO HI-Jack LOL We love Gene,

    But on a Caesar/Wallace note, I'm thinking of bumping Wallace to mediums. He refused a Fresh Killed large (small large) yesterday and I only offered because two other refused. He is passed the 10 day mark and isn't wild about eating just yet so I guess I'll offer up the rest of the smalls and then when his 1st B-day comes on June 1st. He'll got to mediums. I'm happy with his size and don't think he'll be a monster even if he hit 10 feet.

    Wallace isn't as big as Gene. I think he and Caesar are probably close in size, although I think Caesar is probably a bit longer and thicker. I wish we could compare them. The SD X Dwarf and mainland percentages are interesting from snake to snake and the affect on growth would be worth studying a bit more.

    Wallace still fits in the royal python's first hides from years ago.

    No more pee sprays or pissy cage behavior either. He's becoming a really nice fella.

    OK, OK,,

    Sorry Gene, it's your thread and I'm curious like Sauzo is; Did he wizz from excitement over the next rat or was that rat wet when he got it?

    Lol its not a hijack. We just use each others threads to discuss on. So whoever it lands on, we use that persons thread until new pics pop from someone else haha.

    Gene is longer than Caesar. Gene is 5.5' I think and Caesar is 5' at least semi measure. As for thickness, they might be both about the same. Caesar is about 1.5" thick. He is filling out more though which is kind of why I'm cutting him back to mediums and going to try every 10 days. He LOVES to eat though. Every time I open the cage, he is front and center lol. I boop his snoot with the twisted paper towel and he usually looks all disappointed and goes back into a hide lol. He is a spazz though when I take him out. No longer the calm relaxed snake, he just wants to gogogogo. Took him out this morning to stir up his Eco Earth and he was crawling all over me like crazy haha. He isn't near the lounge snakes the boas are anymore.

    Lol and good Wallace doesn't soak you anymore. Caesar took his first piss on me though. I let him out to hang out and then I felt a warm raining on my foot. I looked down to see Caesar's fat butt hanging over my foot pissing on it lol. It wasn't a ton of piss, it was like he was marking me lol.

    As for mainland percentages, yeah that is interesting. Also I have heard tiger is a big gene so retics with tiger gene tend to get larger. Not sure if it's true or not but Caesar has definitely gotten a lot bigger than when o got him. He was about 2' back in Oct. Today when I had him out, I saw just how big he is. Luckily he is still as nice as when he was a baby although like I said, he doesn't sit still for anything anymore and where he wants to go, he pretty much goes. Hard holding him back LOL.

    Does his stomach gurgle when you try to hold him back?? If Wallace get far enough out of my hand and its under his stomach, it makes a sound and I'm just waiting for the explosion LOL!

    My boa did this when younger but nothing like Wallace. He doesn't even have food in him today, at least not yet.

    I'm guessing they are close in size.

    And yeah, Gene,,,, we jump in and out of each other's threads Feel free to pop in and "Gene up" a Wallace or Caesar thread.
