    Thanks! I hope so as well, but I'm preparing myself for the worst, and hopefully once all the garters are finally gone, the remaining animals will be easy to rehome (if need be) considering how quickly Tirel was able to be placed. I really miss sharing my animals, and I hope being able to relax will help bring my enthusiasm back up and I'll become more active again. I really have no excuse not to be, I just feel so bogged down by day to day life I mainly want to focus my energy on the animals first.

    Crona's kinda getting chunky, or he's holding a big poop, but he's hard to get photos of as he's gotten big enough now it's hard to take one handed photos now. lmao With any luck I'll have more updated photos of everyone soon, I want to try this week as OT is going to be starting next week and I will have even less free time...we're supposed to be getting like 6 days off in July (hence the OT) but with any luck I won't be at my current job anymore by then, and I'll have more time off of work again.

    Not much changes with Cloud and Howl as they're adults, but I should really measure them both again soon and see if they've grown any more.

    The young boas keep trucking along, Crona is on the cusp of moving onto mediums, but despite being bigger/heavier than Nymeria was when she made the switch, I still haven't fully switched him yet. He's doing quite well on the smalls, and the smallest mediums still leave a noticeable lump, so I'm just offering them every few feedings atm. Plus, he's still getting left over adult ASF from when I culled all my ASF, and those ASF are really pulling their weight as far as his growth and girth. With any luck, I'll be getting either more ASF or some mice soon, now that the animal room has gone through major rearranging. Even if I had unlimited funds, there's just no homes available where I live, so trying to make the best of what we've got.

    Some pics of Crona out on the back deck to show how he's looking.





    Dominika has been doing pretty well over the summer gaining weight back, and I've been feeding her jumbos for a few feedings now to see if that gets her into a breeding mood. I'm not totally sure it's necessary to pump her with food, but being a newbie, and considering my luck last season, I figured I'd see if a bit more food leading up to pairing helps anything. Trying not to go too far with it, though. Once I actually begin pairing, I'll probably drop down to smalls and mediums like I did last season. I'm hoping to begin pairing next month, or even in Nov, depending on how things look.

    I don't have any suuuper recent photos of her, but here's a few more recent than the last photos.





    Nymeria continues to grow, she's super deceptive about it though. lmao It seemed like she hadn't grown at all last year, but looking back at her records, she grew her usual 8" in the past year, and there are some barely noticeable differences in size between photos. She's barely past 5', but with how thick she is, I've been feeding her rats right on the cusp of mediums and larges for awhile - at 150-180 grams. I'm still not sure she'll be moving fully onto larges by this winter's fasting period, but should be able to move up pretty quickly next spring/early summer.







    Howl is being Howl as usual, I haven't measured him again yet, I want to give it some more time. Last time I measured him was 8/20, but I think I'll wait until next summer to measure him again since growth is so slow at this point. See if he's grown any more then.
