    Designing it is a lot of fun, and also "how much crap can I jam in one tub??" lol. You get to mess around and your snake gets more stuff to interact with, win/win!

    There's a secondary description further down on most items (it's hiding, it's evil), but the one I picked is for sure made of hardwood. Only thing I don't like about it is the metal hooks at each end. It's made of heveawood rods, as the product description claims. Here's the link!

    I think most of the other ones would have worked -- only a few I found were made out of pine or just generic "all-natural wood". But, I wanted to be sure either way. Hope that helps!

    temporarily got stuck bc suddenly my butt's too big for this plant?????? what??????

    I took her out a bit early today (it's been around 42 hours since she ate, and she was all over her tub last night) and got some decent natural-light shots. I also found Corey Woods’ old page about Red Axanthics today, which had some stuff that made me laugh a bit:

    “Red Axanthics and Het Red Axanthics can be aggressive as well as outgoing animals. They don’t like to sit still and can be hard to photograph.”
    Just from Mazikeen’s behavior, I can pretty much agree with all of this. She’s an extremely aggressive feeder. When I open the tub to spot-clean she will literally crawl out right into my hand. And she will not sit still, not even after a nose boop. She’ll freeze when something startles her, but she doesn’t stay frozen for long, and she uses every single inch of her tub at night. She’s not “aggressive” in the bite-y sense, though. So, can’t really attest for the entire morph but yeah, that pretty much describes Mazikeen!

    She found my watch – one of the few surfaces on me that she actually has a decent grip on – and kept spinning around it. And squeezing. Strong grip for a tiny snake!

    (As for photography…. if she notices my phone she tries to sit on it. Silly girl.)





    Pretty sure she's one meal away from heading into shed; the darker markings inside her side pattern are getting even darker, and so far she's shed after 6 meals each time. Next meal is #6, so we'll see if that's the magic number come Monday!

    And since I forgot last time, here's a view of her tub from the outside, showing the CHE/UVB setup + my crappy construction paper "privacy wall" so my overhead light doesn't bleed into her enclosure as badly at night.

    I took her out for a few minutes to see how she looked. Don't think she's gone blue yet, but she looks pretty dang close.

    Hey everybody guess who's blue .







    She did not LIKE being out and made it known by wiggling as ferociously as possible. Tremble in fear, peasants, for Queen Mazikeen is CRANKY! :').

    Oh, believe me, I never doubted she's in blue right now. It just hits her kind of hard, apparently, what with how much her temperament changes whilst she's in shed lmao. Does not WANT to be held, does not WANT to wander the cage at night. She's most like the "pet rock" folks claim BP's are when she's in shed. It's kind of eerie :/.She's right as rain after she sheds and eats, though; it's just the wait up until then, hahaha.

    So I've been peeking in on her periodically, just to see if I need to re-wet her moss. She's due to shed either Monday or Tuesday, and right now I'm betting on Tuesday. Here she is, hugging her moss.


    And then today I checked her, still no change, so I thought I'd take he rout for a few minutes, just so I could get a comparison picture to right before she went blue. She's definitely darker now. Afterwards she went straight back to her hot hide, so that's just the place to be for sheds, apparently.




    She's getting so big ;w;. And to think this is only the beginning!
