    That is awesome

    I know you are excited and I hope with all of my heart that this is behind you.

    For the sake of education and others that may be reading this I would just like to point out, Nido will not necessarily get worse or kill within 3 month. If it kills, it usually takes 3 to 6 month, but many snakes just stay chronically ill for a long time, or turn un-symptomatic.

    Please understand I'm not trying to worry you or rain on your parade, this is truly just so that other people reading will understand this and always seek out the latest research, which is still ongoing.

    At this point this is the latest one

    I do believe Yafe simply has some issues still with his respiratory system recovering. I have had a terrible walking pneumonia once and it took me a good 4 month to breathe normal again, and another 2 month to fully recover from feeling weak and quickly tiring.

    Since he did get pretty sick, it will take time to go to 100%. Just the fact that he is eating now and doing normal snake things is absolutely awesome Now you and Katie can relax and enjoy your animals. Doing boring stuff like cleaning poop and whatnot

    Zina10 - thank you. I know where your heart is and where you intentions come from!

    He sounded eh today when I picked him up to put him in the new digs. I am very hopeful that being in a tank with great temp and humidity control and many hide options and a greater temp gradient can only help him heal!

    However, he is still a sweet and calm boy and continues to be tongue flicks galore. So I continue to be optimistic!

    Pictures coming ASAP!

    Re: Yafe - Albino Carpet - FINAL - Progression Thread

    Yafe went in to his new home today. He went pretty much right into a hide. I'll see if he explores tonight.

    He wheezed a little when I picked him up, but I think part of that was displeasure; haven't handled him much lately.

    He was then sweet and calm, but popping a bit in my hands, but still tongue flicks like crazy, so that was good.

    By the time I got him downstairs and was introducing him to the new tank, I could feel he was getting a little uncomfortable.

    I am hoping and praying that the new tank makes a big difference for him. The stability in humidity and the temp gradient can only help.

    Here's video of Yafe moving into his new digs: https://streamable.com/l7kka

    Re: Yafe - Albino Carpet - FINAL - Progression Thread

    Yafe seems to loving his new digs.

    Humidity, with the heat running often here in CT and not much humidity in the house, is maintaining around 55% without intervention. A quick mist or two every couple of days keeps it averaging about 60%.

    Below are a few pictures of Yafe exploring the heck out of his new enclosure last night (note: I moved things around today - so the pictures in this thread and my "reptile area" thread will look different as well as pictures on a go forward basis).

    Yafe was due to eat tonight (7 days from last feed) and I figured why not? If he refuses, I'll just offer again in a week, or Sunday, when everyone else eats.

    Well, he nailed, coiled, and happily ate, a 16G F/T rat fuzzy. No problem at all. I think he's really liking his new home and he really seems to like rats. That's two in a row!

    Feliz begging for food while Yafe explores (he ate the day before, FYI).

    That's great news Dave, go yafe.
    He should soon start to grow and pile weight back on rats, that's for sure
    Really glad he's enjoying his new digs

    Re: Yafe - Albino Carpet - FINAL - Progression Thread

    I spoke to the vet again to today.

    She reiterated that as long as he’s doing snake things like eating, being active and climbing, going hot side to cold side, drinking, peeing, pooping, etc. she’s happy.

    She said again that if he had an active infection it would have returned by now in full force.

    She he thinks the good temp gradient and proper and CONSISTENT humidity can only help him get as well as can be. However. She is open to the idea that he has some permanent damage.

    Only time will tell.

    Thank you again to all for the support and kind words. We all appreciate it.

    I will keep everyone in the loop.

    You & Katie really deserve a lot of credit, along with your vet, for really sticking with it, to get Yafe as healthy as he can be. What a lucky snake to have landed
    with you.
