    Re: Yafe - Albino Carpet - FINAL - Progression Thread

    No shed as of today. I fed the rest of the crew tonight, but I skipped Yafe, and will offer after he sheds. He should shed any day now, if not tonight.

    He's been in the warm hide curled up for 3 days now. I've kept humidity averaging around 65-70% instead of 55-60% or so.

    Re: Yafe - Albino Carpet - FINAL - Progression Thread

    Woke up at 2AM this morning and was kind go restless.

    I went downstairs, and guess who was on his branch/perch for the first time in a while?

    Also, guess who shed? A perfect shed too.

    Yafe!

    I quickly defrosted a small rat fuzzy (about 12G), but he showed no interest. Not sure if he's not in the mood, it was too small, or what, but I am not worried at all.

    Feeding day here for the snakes is Sunday. I wanted to offer something smaller so he would eat Sunday with everyone else, but also to see if he would go after a smaller prey item now that he's been eating normally for a bit.

    Not necessarily a controlled experiment, but I'll offer something bigger on Sunday and see what happens.

    I would have be fine with him eating, but I am also interested to see how he sounds tomorrow. I imagine it can only be better, or the same. I am hoping shedding got some residual stuff out of his nose, etc.

    Additionally, he is due to poop, but he's a python, and growing, so I am not too worried. It's been a little bit, but again, python, growing, and he is showing no signs of being backed up at all and has been urinating normally.

    I'll try to report tomorrow on how he sounds and get some better pictures with the lights on!

    Re: Yafe - Albino Carpet - FINAL - Progression Thread

    I took Yafe out this morning.

    He still has some residual noise and when out for a bit, the noises get a little worse. He also made several movements to indicate he was uncomfortable after a bit. However, the noises, which were only pops, at their absolute worst, where quieter than they were a week ago at the quietest they got. So that's really good.


    He's looking amazing and seems happy. Lots of tongue flicks and he's very gentle.


    He also weighed in at 165G today. He was 120G when we got him. He is due to use the bathroom, but still, he's a growing boy.

    Looking good, Yafe!

    He probably didn't eat because he was not focused on food yet, having just shed...it doesn't always pay to be a "helicopter".

    The good news is if he has scars, they won't get bigger and he will, so they will have less of an impact on him as he ages and grows.

    Understood and agreed. I offered quick, he refused. I took out the rat and that was that. No need to over stress him.

    He will be offered again on Sunday per the feeding schedule.

    Re: Yafe - Albino Carpet - FINAL - Progression Thread

    Good news and good news.

    Yafe left me a couple presents yesterday from the night before. He peed and urated 1X and pooped and peed 1X as well.

    His weight, dry, is 145G. That's up from 120G when he arrived and he was down to 110G after using the bathroom the day after he arrived and then not eating for 6 weeks (his low weight was 110G).

    I'll take a 35G weight gain on a snake that was ill and not eating and who seems to be feeling a lot better.

    The other good news is I did NOT take pictures of the event, so I have no pictures to share today.
