    Super cute! I love how she drinks like a chameleon haha. I've seen my BP do that before too, it's adorable.

    It's also really cool to see her on the cork tube, she camouflages very well!

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.

    Those cork bark photos look awesome! That first one looks like it could be on the cover of a book. And she is SO darn cute in the water-drinking photo, haha.

    Re: Adelita - 2019 Hypo Sonoran

    She is so cute! I will be getting a Sonoran in the next week or two. Would love to hear about your decoration ideas to get it as similar to the Sonoran desert as that was something I was think of doing as well just havenít had the time to research yet!

    Re: Adelita - 2019 Hypo Sonoran

    Daww, thanks guys! Glad people seem to think she's looking good. And yeah, RedRabbit, she does look like a cover girl in that one shot. Maybe if I get my photograph skills up to snuff to create a coffee table book of boas...

    EmiLee: I can keep you updated on enclosure decor ideas. It's actually been a bit difficult finding information about Sonoran boas' habitat preferences in the wild. From what I understand, the Sonoran boas in herpetoculture are descended from a small group seized at the border when someone tried to smuggle them in, so nobody really knows what part of Sonora Sonoran boas actually came from. There isn't much information about Sonoran boas' habits and specific habitat preferences online, either. The few places I've had some luck so far are the Sonoran Desert Museum (who actually bred the first Sonorans seized at the border, if I remember correctly) and iNaturalist. iNaturalist might be the most useful: search for "Boa imperator," look at the boas that crop up in the state of Sonora in Mexico, and see what types of places they're found in. For now, the enclosure won't be the true Sonoran biotope that I planned, but I can work my way towards it in the future. In the mean time, check out Universal Rocks for some faux-stone backgrounds and ledges -- even a simple background can really tie an enclosure together.

    Re: Adelita - 2019 Hypo Sonoran

    Somebody finally sat pretty to be weighed today. She's around 24" and 100g right now with a single meal in her.



    I have just about everything for her new enclosure now -- I got confirmation that her new enclosure's background and ledges finally shipped, and those are the last pieces I need. She'll be moving into her new home soon!

    In the mean time, I've decided to hold off on getting her a sibling. It's been quite difficult keeping the 20L she's in now stable given how finicky the heat and humidity in my flat are, and I'd rather be done with that. Furthermore, I've done a bit of thinking, and I'm actually not quite sure want I'd want my second snake to be. I'm currently waffling between a royal, an inland carpet, and a nice Sonoran leopard (definitely as a pet, but also as a potential mate if future!me decides she wants to breed). BCLs are awesome, but I've found that they're not as high on my wish list as they used to be. Until I come to a more definitive conclusion as to what I want, I'll be holding off on new snakes.

    Re: Adelita - 2019 Hypo Sonoran

    Thanks! Yeah, the leopards nice and small when they're young, at least compared to your typical BI. I'm actually quite interested in seeing how large she ends up growing and the rate at which she does so. Vin's new book says that leopards tend to stay around five feet, while hypo Sonorans can max out at a more slender six feet (that almost sounds like a BIL*?). Adelita's technically both, so I wouldn't be surprised if she winds up closer to five-and-a-half or even six feet instead of just five feet. I'll love her either way.

    *Apparently longicauda are classified under imperator now. Time to break out the new acronyms!

    Yes I saw that about the longicauda, very interesting book. Isn't it
