    Re: Yafe - Albino Carpet - FINAL - Progression Thread

    A few updates.

    1. Yafe came out again without a hiss!

    2. Yafe made a new friend - my niece! He was a total gentleman! She was a gentle girl, as always.

    3. Yafe ate another Rat Fuzzy (16G), from his branch again, tonight!

    He's well on his way to being a happy, and as healthy as he can be, snake.

    Also, for the record, he did not come out for two days before being handled by my niece, in anticipation of, and he wasn't out long, and did great, and is sounding and acting better than ever.

    Sure looks like he's doing great but I'm almost afraid to say so- I don't want the little rascal to backslide for attention again.

    Re: Yafe - Albino Carpet - FINAL - Progression Thread

    Guess who's looking pretty good these days? Guess who's got muscle tone and color and happy tongue? Guess who's climbing like a BOSS Carpet Python?

    Yafe, that's who!

    Oh, and guess who hasn't hissed at his Dad when he gets picked up, in over a week (3X times getting picked up)?

    Re: Yafe - Albino Carpet - FINAL - Progression Thread

    Good news and eh news, but I think they are related.

    Over the past week, Yafe's popping/puffing noises have seemed to get a little worse. Again, no discharge, still happy tongue, still alert and he's been eating, etc.

    However, I think there's a good reason.

    I think he's finally going to shed!

    I've attached a couple of pictures, but it's so hard to see with his eyes. It looks like he's starting to cloud over and he's acting like it too. When I went to check on him the other day, he was very reactionary. Very jumpy and seemed startled by the hook and my touch. He lunged/jumped several times when touched, but not towards me or striking, etc. Just, obviously startled and trying to be on guard in case he had to get away. NO hissing and NO striking despite not being able to see well! He's doing really well in that regard. As soon as I picked him up, he calmed right down as well. His skin looks a little faded and a little wrinkled, but he's so bright, it's hard to tell.

    Hopefully, I will be reporting a shed soon and also that some of the noise has cleared up as well. I am hopeful that any residual gunk in his nostrils clears out with the old skin.

    EDIT: Additionally, he has not been climbing, which is unusual for him, but rather, been curled up in his hides.

    I agree, he's going into shed & growing up! And he's smart enough not to climb when his clothes might fall off, lol. Good snakey!

    Shed- you can also tell by the way his skin dimples slightly near the second curve in above photo. It's hard to see the clouding on albino types, but the skin
    texture also gives it away.
