    Re: Yafe - Albino Carpet - FINAL - Progression Thread

    Yafe came out today for a little one on one time.

    He let out a half hearted hiss when I tapped him with the hook handle and woke him up, but then was fine and chill. He's starting to get really inquisitive and curious and is a sweet guy.

    I had him out about 4 days ago, but then fed him Sunday night, and didn't feel well yesterday, so this is the first time I've had him out for any length of time since he shed.

    Here's the amazing thing.

    He hissed, but other than that..............

    NO NOISE! NO POPS, WHISTLES, etc.

    He sounds totally normal.

    Even after 5 minutes of being out and social, no pops. I am not going to say we are 100% out of the woods, but we are getting pretty close if we aren't there.

    I was blown away and ecstatic! He's all happy tongue and moving calmly and gently and seems comfortable for the first time ever!

    I am so incredibly happy!

    He also really looks good. He has some weight on him now. His colors are vibrant; orange and yellow and white, with even a little pink!


    Here's a quick video of Yafe looking and sounding great! https://streamable.com/3yxme

    Re: Yafe - Albino Carpet - FINAL - Progression Thread

    Yafe continues to be doing very well. I think I heard a pop or two the other day, but I am not sure. Maybe I am paranoid, or maybe he's got a tiny bit of residual whatever. It was so quiet, who knows. I also have a head cold so it was probably me breathing.

    He's gaining strength and size and getting really chill and inquisitive.

    I think he must be feeling better, and overall, pretty good, because he attacks his F/T rats from above on his branch, coils them with half his body while the other half is coiled around his branch, and even eats the prey while hanging!

    He's really a sweet guy. Not much hissing at all now and although a little darty and sometimes difficult when I try to take him out (he will get off one branch only to coil the next while I try to take him out), he's a total sweetie when out.

    Here are some pictures of our happy, healthy, growing, boy.

    I just got over a dumb cold...I'm hoping you just imagined the pops were his. Yafe's looking great & obviously feeling like a real snake, finally.

    Either way, he's showing so much improvement, that if he has a tiny bit of scarring, I believe he will grow out of it.

    Hope you feel better soon Bogertophis.
