    Just be sure the hoppers aren't too big for his mouth....no harm using fuzzies either, they're easier for him to digest & his slow recovery is totally normal-
    you're doing great & he's doing great, no rush. And the "white stuff" is called "urates"...

    I'm more concerned if the hopper will be enough goi g from two fuzzies. The fuzzies are 7g each. Hoppers are usually 10-12g. And head size won't matter I'll crush the skull if needed before feeding.

    Honestly (from what I can see of him) I'd probably keep him on multiple fuzzies for a while, & not sure one hopper would be enough, but you could do one
    hopper + one fuzzy, etc. My TX Longnose snake eats like that, a mix of pinks/fuzzies/very small hoppers...typically 4 or 5 per meal in summer, actually.

    Ah good idea. Thank you. I just want him to get all healthy lol. He looks to be going cloudy which I am so happy about!

    Do I increase humidity when they go in she'd like a BP?

    It's wonderful to see a neglected snake get to catch up on food & growth, but don't be surprised if it takes "forever" for him to look like he's gained weight-
    he will, but at the same time, he'll get longer, making him still appear to be thin.

    Normally it shouldn't be necessary to increase humidity, but he may still be a little under-hydrated, so a little more humidity might help, but don't over-do it-
    his humidity needs are not the same as a BP. As long as he has a bowl of water & enough privacy to use it, he should be fine. It will be interesting to see if
    he opts for soaking?

    So Eeden (formally the little one) is in blue! This will be the First shed with me and he had a big poop and eurates as well. He is doing so well. My daughter named him. Since we don't know boy or girl she went with a gender neutral name. I think it fits well.

    Eeden has really rallied with your TLC, it's wonderful to follow. Nothing wrong with not knowing & using a gender-neutral name either, I've never
    checked the gender of my longnose snake...it matters not, & would only stress him or her for no good reason.

    Thanks craig. I always wait until you post lol. django is awesome and I can't wait until Eeden gets big!

    Eeden is 107g today, full on in blue and took two fuzzies. I left the third in for him to eat if he wishes.

    Happy this little one is thriving. My daughter loved to hold him while she was here. She is a reptile girl!
