    I think Mosaic will get quite a bit bigger than Yafe will, but it's cool they are on similar growth trajectories.

    The hook works great once they get accustomed to it and know what it means - NO FOOD! Having said that, I remove all my bigger snakes and food oriented snakes when I do maintenance in tank. I find that reduces the risk of a bite. Mosaic seems calmer once out, is that correct?

    It was a roller coaster ride with Yafe in the beginning, but it's paid off. He's really is an awesome snake and not only is he pretty calm, but he's my only real display snake. He loves being on his perches and checking out what's going on around him.

    Let's keep our fingers crossed on Behira, but I am (cautiously) optimistic. I love that she helped inspire you to get a Boa. That's awesome.

    Thank you again and I'll continue to keep everyone in the loop. You do the same with your crew!
    Sorry it took me so long to respond. Been busy.
    Mosaic too is also my display snake, I did not expect her to spend so much time on her branches when she got older. But man every time I go to check in on everyone she's out just chillin, its awesome.
    Yes she also is a great deal calmer outside her cage. I mostly am just practicing good cage habits with Mosaic while she is small because she HAS tagged me in food response and I am well aware the size she may obtain someday, I don't really need to be tagged by a head and teeth as big as my hand down the road.
    She's quite honestly fine once I get the message across that its not feeding time.
    Based on your question I'm thinking you're suggesting I have a tub set aside to hold my larger girls during cage maintenance?

    Regarding a tub/holding container, yes. I put all my large and strong food response animals in a separate container when I do cage maintenance. No reason to ask for trouble and going in there with hook = getting picked up and if no hook, FOOD!

    This eliminates confusion.

    Keep working with Mosaic and doing the above will help. Good luck and keep us posted.

    I too have to hold or move a couple of my critters to do any cage maintenance. Occasionally I'll get lucky and can change their water without having to remove those animals. I use the hook, and they know they're not getting fed, but they're still pretty defensive inside their enclosures. It's a pain in the neck sometimes but I guess it comes with the territory. The things we do. Must be love.
