    Re: Yafe - Albino Carpet - FINAL - Progression Thread

    Yafe is doing great. He downed a 22G F/T rat tonight and didn't hiss at me when I picked him up earlier to changes his water and look for waste. He was pretty chill overall today, and lately, except for going after his F/T rats!

    He hasn't pooped in a bit, so I don't have a good weight, but best guess is over 180G.

    Spent some time with Yafe tonight. He's doing great and looking and sounding excellent! He's really getting noticeably bigger as well.

    You fought so hard for this little guy- it's really nice to see him thriving like this...it never gets old seeing snakes regain their health.

    Re: Yafe - Albino Carpet - FINAL - Progression Thread

    Proper DSLR pics of Yafe. He peed and urated and is now 195G (still due to poop).

    Wow, that's a big difference from 105G or so when he hadn't eaten in a bit and was sick.

    The proper camera definitely brings the colour out properly, really loving all the pinks on him

    Re: Yafe - Albino Carpet - FINAL - Progression Thread

    I am freaking out a little.

    Yafe shed last night, and looks amazing. HOWEVER, when I took him out to clean his cage and weigh him today, he was popping again. He's still flicking his tongue, but became visibly uncomfortable after a few minutes. I got him back into his tank ASAP, raised temps a a degree on the hot spot - 93F on his perch vs. 91-92F and upped humidity slightly. It's been about 50% in there for him, but I got it closer to 60% for now.

    I am perseverating. What if he's getting sick again? What if he's going to keep getting sick???????????

    Okay, deep breathes. He was eating and still popping before I moved him into the his current and proper enclosure. Maybe the shed irritated things, but he just needs a few days.

    I am going to keep a close eye on him, but also pretty much let him be.

    Any thoughts are welcomed.

    I think he's learned to do that to keep you interested & wrapped around his pretty little tail... (you can't be "under his thumb" since he doesn't have one)

    Maybe his nostrils didn't shed quite right? Too soon to panic...but I can understand your concern, for sure, after all you've been thru with him.

    You never did have him tested for nidovirus, did you? I hate (HATE!) to ask... But anyway, from what I've read, some snakes seem to clear that infection
    in 6-12 months, & Yafe IS doing much better now, so maybe? This is just speculation & I suspect it's what's already going thru your mind as well. Only
    one way to find out, if these symptoms continue, you should at least find out what you're dealing with. Your vet's probably on speed-dial anyway...

    Yes...I HOPE he's OK too, & that it's just your imagination after all you & he have been thru...I think I might be "hearing pops" too?

    Re: Yafe - Albino Carpet - FINAL - Progression Thread

    I checked Yafe yesterday, briefly. I did not want to bother him, but I also wanted to make sure things weren't getting worse. Last time he went no pops to pops in a day he was leaking mucus out of his nose the next day.

    GOOD NEWS, I think. Resting I didn't hear pops. I picked him up for all of 30 seconds and he was popping, but there duration was longer than the day before and the pops were a little quieter.

    What does this mean?

    I think it's a good sign that he's not popping at rest, that I can tell (I do not make a habit of sticking my head into my snakes' faces when they are in their tank). He was resting in his hide right at the front so I think I would have heard it. He is, however, staying in his hides. He's usually climbing all around most of the time.

    I plan on keeping humidity up and temps up (temps up slightly) and giving him a few days to rest. I am hoping the shed aggregated something but that he's able to fight it off easily. It looks like that might be what's happening now.

    He also looks stunning. I took a couple pictures while he was in his tank and before I picked him up. As you can see from the pictures, his nostrils are clear and his color is good.
