    What amazes me so far about her is how gentle she can be with me and yet so fierce she can be with prey. Even with prey she had a daintiness to her. I think her eye had some suck shed on it. Several layers actually. At this point she has dented the eye cap and hope it resolves now that the stuck shed is off, with next shed. She is so amazing. Have only had her for 2 days and love her so much.

    I turned a humidifier on and she hissed at it several times. I was startled at first. The increased humidity helped the stuck shed on her eye to come off.

    She makes rainbows as she moves in the light. Photos don't do her justice.

    After seeing it, I bumped up the humidity in her enclosure last night to 85% for a few min, their was stuck shed on her eye. Now the eye cap has a dent in it. I think if she sheds again it will be ok. I do have a vet appointment for her Saturday morning. Looks like the eye underneath is ok and normal. Just bad scale over it. She also has another patch of skin that looks like loose scales. About a 2 inch by 2 inch patch. I am not sure if that is getting ready to shed or post shed problem. Doesn't look like stuck shed to me. Doesn't photograph well. Just looks like loose scales.

    The vet says she was dehydrated. The eye is already looking better. Will post pictures next week. Giving her time to digest.

    I ditched the substrate. Was to fine and causing her issues. Did not take long to learn that lesson. I like the wood chips better.

    Reticulated python urinate I suppose. Easy cleaning in the water bowl.

    Re: Rainbow is my new SunTiger female reticulated python progression.

    I wanted a second opinion about Rainbows eye. Found a second local herp vet. She said her eye problem was a deformed scale below her eye causing her eye cap to be deformed. When she was checking it out Rainbow decided to empty out in protest. It was rather impressive how much piss and poop that she squirted out rather quickly. I wish I had a video of it! I think I will give Rainbow time to shed and look at the eye again. Her eye moves as it should under the deformed eye cap. I will post more photos tonight.
