    What are the dimensions?

    In my 18x18x18 Exo-Terra I have a vaguely "L" shaped piece of grapevine that goes from one diagonal corner to the other (front/right/bottom to rear/left/top). In a 48" long fishtank enclosure I bought a shower rod to be a climbing branch that goes all the way across.

    Since a tank/tub is low friction you either need something that can stand up (so it has to have one side with a base) or it has to go diagonal so the sides of the tank prop it up.

    For baby snakes you could whip up a nice little play-gym out of plastic tinker toys. I've seen people do PVC climbing gyms for bigger snakes, this is just the miniature version of that.

    She took a poop so I took a pic. This girl was eating live at the breeder's place but it's all f/t at Casa de Ziggy. Gonna try feeding her this weekend.

    The one thing I found that you can count on about Balls is that they are consistent about their inconsistentcy.

    Rome wasn't built in a day. Patience is a virtue. Good things come to those who wait. Those are the things I keep telling myself while I wait for this one to calm down and eat. She's not very friendly when I first open her tub and likes to greet me with a hiss. I picked her up for a few minutes then put her back after she calmed down. Will try feeding her again this weekend. Fingers crossed. If she refuses f/t again I'll give her a live feeder next week.

    Gorgeous and feisty.

    I hope she eats this weekend and you can begin more gentle handling soon and start building trust.

    Good luck and keep us in the loop.

    Boom! First f/t hopper down the hatch. She hissed and struck defensively when I dangled the mouse from the tongs so I left it. Came back an hour later, the hopper was gone and the snake was in her warm hide. I love it when a good plan comes together. 😀

    Really glad she ate for you, my male Bcl would only drop feed in the dark for about a year but as long as he was eating I was glad, but this last 3months heís turned into a pig proper strikes and coils like a mad man
