And even amongst shed, when i took him out to check out his eyes i didnít even get a hiss or ball at all. Just checking out my arms again haha. Super happy with him! Now just to get him to eat after he sheds to ease my mind. (i tend to worry about my babies too much haha)
    That's awesome! My Monty acts the same exact way. Never an ounce of aggression towards me....not once. Isn't it great? Oh, and the name (Blue) is actually clever, IMO. A Lucy is actually what I'm shopping for right now.

    Congrats! He's beautiful!

    May have figured out the bad shed reason. I bought an Accurite thermometer/hygrometer and itís reading about 20% lower humidity than my other hygrometer.

    At least he has a humid box in there now and iíll show him how to use it when i see his eyes go hazy. Honestly regretting not going with a tub setup now lol

    Howís her weight looking to you guys? I know itís a blurry pic (through the glass). From what you can see tho does she still look a little underweight?

    Her spine still seems to be sticking out a bit so she seems a tad underweight to me but if you keep feeding her regularly with the right-sized prey I think she'll be fine in no time

    Thanks for the confirmation! Sheís on small rat pups (borderline fuzzy/pup) and i think they may be a tad too small.

    Should i go up to a regular sized pup or should i just feed every 5 days instead of 7?

    Re: New to this forum, Got a BEL, Shed question

    Hereís a link to the BP Husbandry section with a chart on feeding that gives some good rule of thumb guidelines on prey size and frequency.

    https://ball-pythons.net/forums/show...ing-Guidelines

    I personally donít feed more than every 7 days with a prey item roughly 10-15% of the snakeís weight. I will also feed 2 smaller prey items when my snakes are transitioning to the next size up.
    Other Snakes:
    Duncan
    - 1992 0.1 Bci; Hudson 1988 1.0 Colombian rainbow; Yang 2002 1.0 Corn snake; Merlin 2000 1.0 Solomon Island ground boa; Kett 2015 1.0 Diamond Jungle Jaguar carpet python; Dakota 2014 0.0.1 Childrenís python

    Ball pythons:
    Eli 1990 1.0 Normal; Buttercup 2015 1.0 Albino; Artemis 2015 0.1 Dragonfly; Orion 2015 1.0 Banana Pinstripe; Button 2018 1.0 Blue Eyed Lucy; Piper 2018 0.1 Piebald; Belle 2018 0.1 Lemonblast; Sabrina 2017 0.1 Mojave; Selene 2017 0.1 Banana Mojave; Loki 2018 1.0 Pastel Mystic Potion; Cuervo 2018 1.0 Banana Piebald; Claude 2017 1.0 Albino Pastel Spider; Penelope 2016 0.1 Lesser
