    Re: Behira - 2016 Female Ivory Ghost - First BCI

    My friend Alyssa came over yesterday. She's apprehensive about snakes, but not afraid. She hadn't been to the house in a few years and hadn't met Behira. The first snake she held was Shayna (my Albino Spider BP) and in general, she's pretty brave.

    She really dug Behira and thought she was a total sweetheart. I cannot argue that. She also loved Solana and thought she was stunning. She pet Frank (Northern Blue Tongue Skink), but didn't hold him.

    Here are a few pics of her with Behira. I love educating and getting people to love the reptiles, but especially the snakes.

    It's not that she didn't like him. I think she was more comfortable with the snakes. Frank can be squirmy if not supported correctly. Also, his look is very different. I've had many people comment that he looks odd - somewhere between a snake and a lizard. She happily pet him and he was the last animal out and we were about to eat dinner. I think she was on reptile overload and hungry.

    Behira left me a present this morning. Dry, she's now 1,690G. She seems to be having another growth spurt.

    Behira and I had some quality time. She's so gentle. It's fun for me, today, I got to be a tree!

    Got some good shots of Behira this morning. Katie was sleeping and I had some quality time with Feliz and Behira.

    She's getting big, but still, gentle as ever. She was in her semi-dark phase.



    This is my favorite:

    Behira's Growth from 1 year and 4 months and 450G to last month and 3 years and 5 months and 1,700G. She's in shed now and I'll post pictures when she is done, but I thought this progression was kind of neat.

    Re: Behira - 2016 Female Ivory Ghost - First BCI

    Wanted to share a quick story about Behira from tonight. I am really proud/happy.

    She's deep in blue. However, her water's were drying out and I wanted to change them. I am not a fan of going into bigger constrictors cages unannounced or moving around in there while they are in there. Her being in blue didn't make me feel more comfortable.

    I do not handle in shed and usually do not bother my snakes at all, but I wanted to refresh the water for both humidity and drinkability. I clean water for all my snakes and wash the bowls at least once a week, or as needed.

    Anyway, I opened the tank and rubbed Behira with the hook handle, as I usually do. She gently hissed at me. I did it again, and again, a gentle hiss. No defensiveness, but definitely not a happy camper. I stroked her a few times with my hand and she let out another, quiet hiss, and then let me gently move her to her holding container for the 3 minutes it took to change water and clean bowls.

    To be clear, Behira has never hissed at me. She's usually quite amenable. However, I've never handled her in blue either.

    I've had and heard of worse reactions from snakes when in deep blue. I am really happy with her that she told me how she felt, but was calm about it, and let me move her anyway. We've worked really hard together for a long time to develop a rapport, and I couldn't' be happier with how either of us handled the situation.

    I am probably looking into this too much, but it made me happy to know that even when not happy, she communicates that, rather than acting on that.
