    Re: Yafe - Albino Carpet - FINAL - Progression Thread

    Yafe seems to be doing great. I have a few pictures below.

    He still makes some noises, but they are much quieter and fewer than before.

    He is, as previous posts show, pounding and gobbling down food, now rat fuzzy's - even while wrapped around his perch. This shows he is getting both his appetite and his strength back.

    I've left him alone the past two days to digest since his last meal, but took him out briefly tonight to check his tank for waste and see how he was doing.

    He scared me in two ways tonight.

    First, he's really getting his spunk back. I touched him with the hook, as usual, and got a little hiss, but it's getting less each time. Then, when I went to pick him up off his branch, he made several darty movements, including one towards my hand. At first, it scared me and I expected a bite. However, I figured out pretty quickly that wasn't going to happen, and he was just a little nervous. He let me untangle him and start to get him out of the tank, but as I started to pull him out, he quickly wrapped 50% of his body around the front branch/perch! What a rascal. At this point he was calm, but determined! Did I mention he's getting his strength back? After a minute of gentle unravelling, I got him out of his tank and he was calm and inquisitive.

    Secondly, for a minute after I got him out, NO TONGUE FLICKS! Oh no! I was starting to freak out! I was looking at his nostrils, checking around his mouth and nostrils for mucus or discharge, etc. All of a sudden, with my head about 5 inches from his face, he has this huge yawn! I mean EPIC yawn. All of a sudden, tongue flick galore again! Not sure what that was all about, but I'll keep on eye on him. Either way, big relief. Can snakes get a "frog" in their throat like humans when we first wake up?

    He was out for about 3-4 minutes and was calm and seemingly happy and chill the whole time. No unusual squeezes, no weird movements, and the noises did not get worse at all over that period of time.

    Finally, his colors are looking better than ever. He is really glowing! I am hoping he sheds soon since he's finally eating regularly. However, he was definitely not at his best color wise when he was sick!



    "Good morning Yafe!"

    "Dad, are you kidding me? I just went to sleep!"

    Your little "baby" is growing up, lol. Learning to play tug o'war & yawning in your face, how rude! Sounds to me like he has a sense of humor.

    Just be sure he doesn't get a chance to play hide & seek...

    Re: Yafe - Albino Carpet - FINAL - Progression Thread

    Yafe peed and urated last night. I cleaned up today and put him in his holding container. Happy tongue all the way! I am very happy. I also snapped a few shots before I took him out and when I put him back, as well as a video of him in his container with happy tongue and being chill. He seems perfectly fine today. What a relief.

    Big breakthrough with Yafe today!

    I rubbed him with the hook, picked him up, and guess what? Not one hiss! Big step forward!

    Glad you had a good day with him but I wouldn't count my hisses for a while...snakes aren't in the same mood every day any more than we are,
    and whether he hisses or not, he's not mad at you anyway...and he's looking good.

    LOL! Not my first rodeo, or snake, or animal, who ever hissed at me! I would be surprised if this was it for hisses from the little guy! However, I'll take no hissing today as a small victory, and a positive step. Especially given that he's been hissing consistently since being in the new tank, and feeling better, every time I've taken him out.

    I learned a long time ago to be realistic, but also to count your blessings. Today I had one, even if it was small, and maybe temporary, with Yafe.
