    Hahaha. That's funny. Vega will go back into his hide like he wasn't looking for food if the door opens and he doesn't smell food at all. It definitely helps reduce chances of getting bit for being warm. He doesn't quit doing it in between feedings, the silly guy. Only easy way to spot a shed is when he stops doing it. His colors are light enough and his eyes are always a sort of cloudy blue color that it is really tough to spot an upcoming shed by sight.

    Yeah, after about a 10 days or so post-feed Maze starts making her rounds of her enclosure. If she doesn't, That's about when I start to think she's in shed. I've been taking her out a lot less often (been pretty busy lately + I'm sure she prefers it lol), but she's never been a biter. Maze takes forever to turn blue, and acts miserable and reclusive around the time her belly turns pink. At least she's pretty obvious when in blue. Sounds like your guy tries to let you know through behavior, even if you can't always tell, which is pretty interesting!

    Tonight, I remembered to replace Maze's water a bit later than usual. Her lights were already off, and she was in her typical 'let me watch you from my hide' pose and not actively wandering, so I decided to just go ahead and do it. As I'm replacing her water, she came over and started drinking, and continued long enough for me to snap some photos.



    (The rock's for springtails, they keep jumping in the water, so that's just so they can climb their way out. They float so jumping in doesn't drown them.)

    Wasn't expecting that. I'm lucky if she even deigns to drink in my presence. I may change her water at night more often if this is how she responds lol.

    Anyways, she now measures at 38 inches, according to Serpwidgets, which is 2 inches of growth in 3 months. She's starting to gain more weight around than length, I think. She's still lean, but getting that chunky ball python body shape in comparison to her smol little head :'). She last ate two weeks ago, and is so far still calm as could be. Going to try for one more week, then do a couple of smaller weekly feedings for variety.

    Here are some older photos from last week, when she was still begging for a second meal lol.


    (if i stare at u hard enough u feed meh rat, yus?)

    And sitting on one of the plants she managed to murder in her post-meal rage.

    And then she came out for a handling session all on her own after that. She's certainly something lmao.





    The pink on her belly's just from the light, it's a very cold color and any shade is tinted pink because of it. She's back home now, safe in a hide .

    She's pretty good at vertical climbing for having never done it before.

    Maze got out of her enclosure while I was at work last night. I found her immediately -- she was trying to climb on a lamp to get to the top shelf of my shelving unit, by the looks of it lol... I'm about 99% sure I know what happened -- I was running around before work and planned to change her water out before I left. Opened the lid, closed it but didn't latch it, and got distracted by checking the tire pressure on my car. Apparently I forgot to come back in and change her water because it was still the same as yesterday morning.

    Feeling frazzled, but glad she didn't make it too far. Even if she went down a level I'm pretty sure she would've gotten distracted by the plants, as I let her do just that after I got over the shock of catching her outside of her house. I'm just relieved she's okay. And now I'll be checking to make sure I latched her lids properly at least 5 times before I go anywhere lmao.

    My roommate came home and found me watching her roam around my plants, and took some pics before she went home. She's awfully cute for being so naughty.





    I can only think that this would have happened eventually, especially since classes just kicked back in. I'm glad it happened the way it did, more as a warning to myself to keep on top of those things, rather than losing her and being unable to rectify my mistake. Hate that it happened to begin with, but. What can you do.

    Quadruple check everything, kids.

    (roommate's insta, since that's where i 'stole' these from https://www.instagram.com/strik_snacha/ )

    This semester of courses is keeping me pretty busy, but I managed to find time for my roommate to get some nicer photos of the girl for me .










    And then a few I've taken lately.
