    Re: Mazikeen progression thread

    Monday was Maze's second "Got'cha Day", and though I'm late, I've got lots of photos to make up for it!

    She's surpassed the 1000 gram "wall" without any fanfare. I'm in the process of building her permanent home from plywood, the progress of which will be documented in the DIY forum. Hoping to finish sanding and start staining tomorrow.

    Also: after two years she loves phones, but still hates grass.

    Nice to see an update, Mazikeen is looking fantastic as always. She seems to be a great climber and really enjoy all the enrichment in her enclosure. Funny how she loves phones and hates grass, my BP is like that too

    Thanks! I can't wait to give her more room to engage in natural behaviors. And haha! Yeah, Maze has always liked going after and wrapping around phones. I think it's the warmth. As for grass, it may just be the feeling of cut grass. Not like I'm going to chuck her into some tall grass to find out though LOL.

    Re: Mazikeen progression thread

    Been a while since I last updated! Mazikeen is currently hovering around 1000 to 1100 grams, but she looks great. She's 46 inches long, so maybe she'll be 4 foot soon? lol

    Photos taken over the course of several weeks.

    Re: Mazikeen progression thread

    Seems I forgot to update this thread in a while. Here's some photos from Halloween (where Mazikeen was my witch's familar), a wander session around the couch from last week, and a peek out of her hide from the other day.

    Re: Mazikeen progression thread

    so... after having binged thru this thread and seeing how much your baby loved her "branch" in her baby bin, I am going to have to add one to my baby's. It's only 8" tall, so gonna have to figure it out but I think my Luna might like that as well. She is always going up when i handle her, climbing on my shoulders and on my glasses lol. Thank you for sharing your amazing and beautiful noodle!!

    Mazikeen is looking great, Starscream.

    Re branches, I think BPs like branches not so much because they're natural climbers, but because all snakes need things to hang onto...so whether it's a cord (that shouldn't be in their enclosure), a branch, or our
    hair (-mine always seems to be fair game, lol), snakes like some "furniture" to grab for traction. They have trouble moving on smooth surfaces & hate the loss of traction, & unless they grow up used to swimming,
    that's also the reason they tend to panic if bathed. I'd keep branches low for ball pythons...more along the lines of driftwood...their wider bodies don't lend much to climbing trees the way rat snakes can so easily.

    I've noticed that too, that glasses of any kind seem to be a real draw for snakes, lol. Just a perfectly place "toe-hold" for an upwardly-mobile snake.

    Yeah she has driftwood which she likes to lay on but I am thinking of just putting a dowel or PVC straight across her enclosure like starscream had in her bin enclosure, just to see if she likes it. Her enclosure is an 8" tall bin, so it would be very low to the ground and not much chance of her getting hurt. Good thing, because she is quite a klutz. She is always sliding off of her hides and her wood and her vines. She always looks at me like it's my fault too.
