    His colors are gorgeous and he is looking great! Fingers crossed for an easy transition to rats in the next couple of weeks.

    Yeah, I think the food is definitely helping. That's also why I want to get one more mouse in tomorrow night (Sunday night) before trying to get him to take rats. That will be 3 mice in 2 1/2 weeks.

    Thanks EL-Ziggy. That really means a lot. I can't take credit for his beauty, it's not like I had much to do with that. However, he is very much loved and I believe, well cared for. He's really a great little dude. I've been leaving him alone, but in the limited time I've spent with him, he's really quite chill and curious. Really a calm guy. I look forward to spending a lot more time with him as he grows and while he's a healthy adult for a long, long, time.

    Yeah, I love the more orange tones and not just the yellows on him; very unique, especially on his head. Darwin Carpet Pythons, of which he is 50% and where his albino comes from (Irian Jaya's do not have, or at least it has not been discovered yet, an albino gene), tend to be very orange as babies, but by the time they are juveniles, and definitely adults, they are all, or almost all yellow and white. He looks like he is going to keep some of those orange hues, especially on his head, which is pretty cool.

    I really think he is due to shed soon and the his colors will pop once he does. Between being healthy now, and finally, and having a good shed, I think he's going to be stunning.

    I am hopeful he switches quickly to rats as well. Now healthy, he does not appear to be a picky eater. However, I know it can be an issue for them.

    I plan to defrost a mouse in the bag with the rat fuzzy and see what happens. Now that's he's got some weight on him and has been eating normally, I am also willing to hold a meal if I have too. I will offer two rats over a two week period if he doesn't take the first, but then will cave and offer a mouse again, before trying again with the rats. I am in no way, shape, or form, going to starve him to try to get him on rats now. He's way to close to that RI to be playing around with food intake too much.

    I will keep everyone in the loop.

    Re: Yafe - Albino Carpet - FINAL - Progression Thread

    Yafe took another small/weaned mouse tonight, about 15G. He's getting braver too. Before, if I offered while he was in his branches, like tonight, he wouldn't take it. I had to wiggle on the ground and he would come down and attack it.

    Tonight, I showed him, wiggled for a second, and bam, grabbed and coiled while still in his branches. He's learning to Carpet Python pretty well.

    I plan to leave him alone until Friday or Saturday, if not Sunday, when I will offer a rat fuzzy, scented with mouse, and see if he takes it.

    I'll update if anything significant happens between now and then, otherwise, assume all is well.

    Well, false alarm, I was wrong.

    He did grab and coil, but when I came back an hour later, the mouse was stuck behind his house.

    I warmed it up again and offered, but no dice, he didn't take it this time.

    Not sure what happened or why he refused it, but I am not going to sweat it.

    Maybe he will be extra hungry when I offer that rat fuzzy later this week?

    Again, I'll keep everyone in the loop.

    Well, darn it! but that just happens sometimes. Who knows, maybe he'll happen to prefer ratties.
