    Just from an examination the vet gives an all clear as far as RIs go (thank); just have to drop by for a fecal whenever she decides to go lol. Only issue I had was, as expected, how close she was to shedding. He handled her pretty roughly and felt up and down her belly, and that was enough for some of the skin on her back to come loose, causing a bunch of holes along her spine. She shed this morning, but the holes made it incomplete. The rest came off just as it should.

    And the thing that got me was, after I'd told the vet that she was literally a day away from shedding, he rubbed the skin loose and looked at me and immediately criticized her humidity. I'm aware, thank you. It's been around 80% all weekend 8/. I still don't think she was really ready to shed this morning, but. Whatever I guess.

    On a more positive note, here are the only two 'good' post-shed pictures. She's so squirmy!



    Such pretty blushing on her head :').

    Despite all the madness in the past two days, Maze remains an eager eater. I took her out a few hours after the above photos were taken and managed to get some nicer ones. Apparently me handling her has nothing on her appetite; I've weighed her right before feeding before and she still took it like a champ.

    The perfect photos:





    She is such a model.

    This time when I presented the rat, she sniffed it for a good two minutes before gently taking it into her mouth. I wish I'd gotten video because it made me laugh. Here she is "constricting" her prey. (Don't mind the hydro monitor, I'd just moved it there to measure on that side of the cage so it's not exactly accurate yet.)



    What a dork. After that she decided to poke her nose out of her hide in a way that made me think she was waiting for more.

    Photos from the past several days.












    (She was asleep for at least 3 hours in the next two photos. She really does love that plant.)

    lmao, thanks! yeah, i really like it so far; realistically i know she's probably going to brown out/turn more red in the future, but those sweet sweet silvers are nice while they last. it's hard to find pics of the super form as an adult because all that comes up in google searches is the het version. oh well. guess we'll just have to watch her change colors as she grows!

    Today I woke up and found Mazikeen sitting on her humid box, which i've never actually seen her do. She moved very little over the course of five hours, so I managed to get this "time-lapse" of sorts.


    Today was also feeding day, so I decided to actually record a video of her wrapping her meal.



    She's never missed before, so I found it kind of hilarious that she did while on camera. The pressures of stardom, I tell yah!

    Substrate was getting a bit dry, so I had to take her out a bit early. She doesn't like the spray bottle at all. I'll be spraying away from her and she suddenly recoils :/. Out of the tub we go!






    And back home she goes (had to take the thermometer out to spray so it's reading low on the hot side in this pic).


    Because I thought it was fun, here's the weighing pic side by side with a pic from exactly a month ago:

    You weren't kidding when you said Maze was right behind Tapioca! Just a single gram apart wow! It's amazing to see how much she's grown since you've had her. Precious little girl is growing so well under your care <3

    It'll be interesting to compare their growth rates since they are so close right now. Who knows, Tapioca might shoot ahead and make up for those extra 6(?) months! And thank you! Crossing my fingers that your boy gobbles his food right up this week!

    Today was cleaning day + feeding, so I didn't get too many pictures.




    She struck and missed the first time this time around too, which is weird. Since she was sitting on the plant I think she might have just lost her balance a little bit.

    Bonus: I caught her doing this last night:


    That's my thermostat probe wire, if you can't tell. It's fixed now, but dang is she ornery! Some folk's snakes push for food.... mine tries to climb the probe wire. Sigh. Good thing I love you, Mazikeen. <3
