    Re: Adelita - 2019 Hypo Sonoran



    Somebody was looking slightly on the lean side, so she got a special Christmas/New Year's feast. Needless to say, she was very happy!

    Looking good! Iíve been tempted to bring my critters out of winter fasting but still trying to hold off another couple weeks. Started bringing up nighttime ambient temp in the room this week. Once weíre around 75į at night Iíll start feeding again. Only one thatís looking a little lean is my male Brisbane carpet but not by much at all.

    I was hoping to put off feeding another week or two myself, but snake biology had other plans. A season of cooler temps and reduced feeding is better than nothing, though. At least her body's had/having some time to rest.

    Prep and execution could have gone better, but considering this is my first time seasonally cycling snakes, I'm not that disappointed with myself. It's been a good learning experience and I have a much clearer picture in my head for what I want to do next year. Fall ended up sneaking up on me, so I just have to be a remember to start the pre-winter "feed up" and shortening the photoperiod and heat-day (ie. how long "day heat" is on) a bit earlier.

    For what it's worth, Kuzco (the longi) is doing great and looks like he can hold off feeding for a while longer. He actually went into the season with a wee bit of chub and that definitely seemed to help body condition-wise. Adelita didn't have that extra bit of reserve energy, so she started getting lean by the time her first major growth spurt was up.

    First time for me as well. Also been a fun learning experience and certainly some things I'll do different next year. I may actually stop feeding and start cooling later as I always forget how warm it stays in Mississippi. A bit of a challenge to get the room down to 70 on some nights. I'll probably feed sooner than the next couple weeks for a couple critters. Everyone honestly looks pretty good after 8 weeks of fasting and the boas look phenomenal. Still would like to keep things as "natural" as one can with a snake living in a plastic box. As Vin Russo said in a Morelia Python Radio podcast once in regards to cycling neonate/juvenile animals, "The sun doesn't shine more on you because you're a baby."

    She's got the most adorable little blush on her cheeks right now. Full and content curled up on her heat.

    Adelita was not happy that her brother got fed without her. She restarted her little begging routine while staring at me with eyes the size of dinner plates until I caved and fed her this morning. I only had one last small mouse on hand, so of course she's still begging for more. Time for someone to get bumped up to adult mice!

    Re: Adelita - 2019 Hypo Sonoran





    Somebody's perfected "the look." Never expected having a snake that would so openly beg for food like this, but here we are!

    Luckily for her an order of fresh feeders arrived from Perfect Prey yesterday. I was a bit worried that the adult mice I ordered her would be too large, but the one she got today didn't leave much of a lump when it went down the hatch. There's a couple of rat pups waiting for her, too, so she'll get introduced to rat fairly soon.
