    Lan Fan is now in her grow-out tub! It should last her until I can build a permanent enclosure. I let her settle for a few days, and fed her this morning.

    Some exploring pics from the first day.






    I caught her out basking before class this morning. Her eyes seemed a little cloudy, but with how much she's faked me out so far (her belly is apparently constantly tinted pink-ish brown), I don't know if that was just the lighting or she's actually starting to go into a shed cycle.



    The eating. These fuzzies seems huge compared to her.

    Haha yeah, she is all about that climbing life. She's been digging some, too, which is fun to see on occasion.

    She loves hugging those branches... Blends right in, great place for hunting when clear-eyed.

    Lan Fan shed on Monday, but only after eating three little pinks. It was a bit funny; she was on a branch, minding her own business but hadn't seemed to get up the motivation to shed yet. Once she'd eaten, she immediately set out getting her shed off. It was perfect and in one piece, but she wrapped it around some plants and branches, and I accidentally broke it when i was trying to remove it. :/. Maybe next time.

    Here she is, two days later. I think her pattern is already beginning to recede, and there is a definite contrast of olive on her body and a greyish-blue on her head. She's grown, for sure.

    It's been a few minutes since my last update. Lan Fan is doing well, but I've been too busy to really handle her much. Hopefully when life calms down a bit I can start working with her in earnest again. In the meantime, pictures!

    A couple weeks ago I popped open her tub and kept an eye on her. The idea was to get her used to the tub lid opening and nothing happening to her; she reacted by doing a few tentative laps around the cold side of her tub.




    Today, I caught her basking beneath her UVB bulb. Maybe she's approaching shed; she was this dark in color just before she entered her last shed cycle.



    She's so little, it's ridiculous(ly adorable).

    Re: Lan Fan the Japanese Rat Snake

    Lan Fan's grown a lot here, and we've been making careful baby steps with her tolerance to handling. She calms down a lot faster once removed from her tub, though she's still incredibly spastic during removal. She's about 40 grams now, which is double what she was when I picked her up in February.

    She tail-rattles fairly often, and while it means she's scared and trying to draw attention away from her head, it is terribly cute.
