    Smaller snakes will use most of what they eat. I wouldn't be too worried. I swear it seemed like Creeper didn't poop for the whole first year. I'm finally starting to see larger turds now.

    Re: Adelita - 2019 Hypo Sonoran

    Put in the order last Sunday night, FedEx delivered Saturday afternoon. Gotta hand it to the team at Kages, they are FAST! Come a trip to Hamburg and a few more deliveries, this kingdom will belong to her.





    It's hard to think she'll be longer than her new cage in a few years. She's just about the depth of it now, though, so she's almost 23" already. I tried to get a more precise measurement, but measuring a sentient, wriggly noodle is hard.



    I plan on weighing her for the first time later this week, after she digests tonight's hopper. Those who are so inclined, place your guesses now.

    I have no good guesses for weight, since I haven't weighed my boa kids yet either and have no frame of reference, haha. However, I have to say I love that last picture of you attempting to measure Adelita, while she stubbornly butts her little snout into your palm.

    "Feed me, Mother. I hunger."



    "Yeessss!"



    She'll learn to eat without flipping herself over eventually.

    I hope.

    I never really weighed any of my boas. As long as they are healthy and eating I don't worry about it.

    Re: Adelita - 2019 Hypo Sonoran

    Glad she's eating well for., not very often a boa isn't a good eater tho,
    It's quite funny how many time they cool and flip over sometimes when they grabbing there prey.

    Such a sweet and gorgeous boa! She has a beautiful opalescent sheen on her scales. And she's such a slender noodle! Very cute, looking forward to watching her grow

    Re: Adelita - 2019 Hypo Sonoran

    Nothing much to report the past few weeks. Adelita continues to be as wonderful as ever - she's still a total sweetheart, in perfect scale, etc. She even learned to eat without flipping herself over! Her new enclosure is coming along nicely, and should hopefully be ready and dialed-in in two weeks or so. It's hard to think this little girl will get to be five feet someday.



    One curious thing about her: she drinks like a chameleon! She prefers to drink freshly-misted water off the surfaces around her tank instead of the water out of her bowl. It's quite funny to watch her go around and drink up the puddles I leave for her with the mister. Such sessions are typically followed by a nice stretch and a yawn:



    Now the question is if she'll be getting a sibling ahead of schedule. Still very on the fence for that matter.

    Re: Adelita - 2019 Hypo Sonoran

    Had a little photoshoot with Adelita on her new cork tube. She had a good time checking all the cool new smells out, though her favorite activity for a while was trying to crawl back to Mom. Managed to grab a few nice pictures of her:











    She's looking a wee bit chubby to me. I think I'll start gradually moving her to a 10-14 day schedule from the 7-8 day schedule she's been on; I've heard of a few people doing that for sub-yearling boas recently. More opportunities for exercise in her soon-to-be-completed 48" x 24" should help as well.
