    ok, i just think he's an exception and a really pretty Albino Mojo then. again congrats on something unique.

    Ah true, having the Lesser would turn him into a Cherry Bomb!

    Thank you again

    Update on Noodle! He's now 152g (empty) and doing well. He loves to climb into my sleeves:













    I think he's gotten a bit wider around the girth since I got him.

    Thank you! Agreed that BPs love climbing, I've seen mine climb a few times and I was pretty impressed since I wasn't expecting a terrestrial species to be able to do that so well. I certainly am planning to add branches, I've already collected some cherry wood from my backyard that just needs to be sterilized. I am also thinking of possibly going with PVC pipe climbing perches (similar to what Starscream did with her BP) to avoid problems with mold and make cleaning easier.

    Whilst PVC pipes have a couple of advantages I just think they stand out as theyíre not realistic looking ... plus they canít be as easy to climb or grip ..

    That's true, those are some downsides. I have my BP in a tub rn so I'm not really going for looks at the moment (that'll change once I can upgrade him either to an AP or custom built enclosure though). In any case, I can always try both and see what works better and what Noodle prefers

    The yellows are not as bright but this looks rather similar.

    It has been quite a few years since I saw this, but there was a tutorial out there to modify pvc pipe into a more naturalistic look. The guy used a torch to heat the pvc pipe so it could be twisted and bent. The flame changed the pipe to a brownish color and I believe it was then stained or painted. The very ends were left unchanged so they could be smoothly mounted into brackets on the sides of the cage. It ended up looking like branches or heavy vines, but was very easy to clean and didnít mold.
