    I'd probably go with Sunday, but I think Friday is probably OK too, as is offering f/t. The worst she can do is say "no thanks", but she'll probably take it- and
    especially if you wait a couple extra days for a bit more hunger to kick in, plus a little more time to "settle in".
    Many friends in low places...

    Re: Adelita - 2019 Hypo Sonoran

    Operation: Dinner Time was a success! My girl made me work for it a bit, though.

    I ultimately decided to wait until today to offer Adelita her first meal home as she still seemed a bit reserved through Thursday. She was quite perplexed by the f/t hopper the first time I offered it - a lot of tongue flicking, a bit of nudging, but ultimately she turned her nose up from it. No dice. Took a reading of her hopper with the IR temp gun and found that its surface cooled to room temp much more quickly than I expected. I decided to go for Round Two and warmed the hopper back up to a hair over 100 degrees F, patted it dry again, and offered it to her a second time. She was a bit offended at first when I waved the hopper a bit closer to her face, but then she took a sniff. Rapid tongue flipping ensued. Then - BAM! - she took her first meal home and switched over to f/t all in one go. I hung back a bit, made sure everything went down the hatch, and then left the room to give her some privacy.

    Now to make sure that she has a nice, stress-free 48 hours to digest her meal. Hopefully she doesn't need any more cajoling next week when I introduce the multivitamin + Ca/D3 supplements.

    Re: Adelita - 2019 Hypo Sonoran

    Adelita got a little enclosure renovation last night - her humidity was only holding in the mid-50's despite twice-daily mistings, so I bumped her up to EcoEarth a bit early. She also had her first real handling session since she came home, and I'm happy to report that she was very well behaved after I tapped her out. Go boas!



    The weather is starting to get pretty variable here and I have limited ability to control the heat in my flat. I may be bumping this girl up to a 4' x 2' x 2' PVC enclosure in a month or two for environmental control reasons.

    Glad all went well with handling, always a nervous time, until you get to know each other properly
