    She's totally laid back, as long as there's no food! Very calm and curious little girl. Not aggression at all and doesn't get scared either. 1

    Of course, food is a separate issue. After skipping a meal a month ago, she ate last meal, and attacked both the doors and the rat tonight. She's back to her old self, which is both great, and eh! I wish she would stop nailing the doors! Oh, well. I'll take that over not eating.

    Katie was kind enough to take some pictures of me and Behira tonight.

    We both have been having a rough week and Behira was a good "therapy snake" to both of us and we got some good pictures. Not pushing Katie on Behira, and we seem to have a good understanding, but she was happy to both hold and take pics tonight.

    I think the last pics I have of me with Behira she was about 600-700G and is now 1,000G. So, noticeable difference, although there is still much growing left for her to do!

    Great pics looked like she was wanting to explore.
    I love the age from 2-3 in boas as they start to mature. It seems to take ages with boas to get some size about them when slow grown properly like she has been ,also love when they start to get that chunky boa head
    Boas are just so cool and so strong

    Yeah, Behira is right in that wheelhouse. 2 years and 2 months now. I am feeding small rats every two weeks and she still grows quite fast. I'll move her up to medium rats every 3 weeks when she's good and ready. No rush; happy and healthy over quick(er) size.

    It's amazing how much her head has "morphed" into a more adult boa head.

    Speaking of Boa heads and growth.

    Here's a picture of Katie the evening Behira came home. Huge difference. Much smaller and much more rounded cheeks and baby face. Awwwww, I miss my little Behira . Not to worry, I'll love big Behira too; especially if she's as chill as she is now (probably more so).

    We've talked a lot about hook training in this thread. I decided to write a thread just about hook training. It's inspired by Behira .

    https://ball-pythons.net/forums/show...24#post2635224

    Any feedback or added suggestions, please post away on that thread! I learned much from all of you and I probably missed something in the thread.

    Re: Behira - 2016 Female Ivory Ghost - First BCI

    Behira loves climbing. She always goes right for the bookshelf next to my big chair in the reptile area. Every once in a while, like tonight, I give her the opportunity to climb on it. She loves it.

    However, as she gets bigger, that bookshelf is not going to support her. I wanted to build a PVC square with multiple levels for her to climb and that would support her at 20 pounds. However, I have nowhere to store something that big.

    Anyone know what I could use that's either smaller/narrower and I could lean or attach to a wall, etc. or that's collapsable. I guess I could just build a jungle gym of sorts into the wall with branches, etc, but I am not sure how easy or doable that is.

    Any ideas are welcome!

    Here's Behira doing her book shelf thing tonight, in chronological order, from "I see something to climb!" to mastered.

    Behira had a ton of waste for me this morning. She clocked in, dry, at 1,010 grams.

    She's a growing girl.

    Picture below of her outgrowing her holding container.

    Behira decided to make a call on my cordless home phone today. She must have really wanted to talk, she wouldn't let go of the phone!

    She's a real cutie patootie D. Judging from your posts it seems like she has a really sweet and inquisitive disposition too. I'm looking forward to seeing my boas grow. That's the biggest adjustment for me in keeping boas vs pythons or colubrids. I'm not used to such slow growing critters that eat far less often. Patience is a virtue though right?
