    Re: Adelita - 2019 Hypo Sonoran

    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.
    We know. .

    I feel the same way about Behira. She's all of 5FT and 1,700G now, but that won't last. She's such an awesome animal, I am at peace with whatever she ends up as. Having said that, I am NOT overfeeding at all and aiming to keep her on the small side of her potential.

    It's not that I am intimidated by her potential size, especially with her temperament, I am just not sure 100% what that will be like, having a big female boa. I've held them and interacted with them, but I've never kept one.

    Frankly, I am excited. It seems you feel the same way about Adelita. That's cool.

    I think people sometimes forget that it takes boas a long time to grow up to size. You really have time to work with them and get to know them. It's not like a week, or even a year, later you have a 6FT animal.

    I am really glad you are enjoying her so much and even considering a second one.

    LET THERE BE LIGHT!









    Adelita's new enclosure is finally assembled! Many thanks to my father who swung by (with his more powerful power tools) to help put it all together. Everything's airing out now and I'll start dialing in conditions when I get my back-up thermostat. All the heavy lifting's done, though, and it feels good.

    Looking awesome.

    Definitely let it air out for a bit.

    Kudos on using a backup thermostat as well. I run redundant setups on all my tanks. They cut off if too hot.

    Re: Adelita - 2019 Hypo Sonoran

    Let Adelita have a little supervised playtime in her new digs today. A lot of curious tongue flicking, though she preferred to remain on her favorite "weird tree," AKA Mom. She seemed to enjoy hanging out under her new UV-B lamp when she finally plopped down on her cork log. It'll be interesting to see how she utilizes it in the future when she's in there full time. A few nice shots for now:

    Awesome. The setup is great. Is she staying there now, or were you just testing the waters?

    Those pictures were breathtaking. And I am loving her enclosure.

    Re: Adelita - 2019 Hypo Sonoran

    Just testing the waters. The enclosure still smells a bit plastic-y (it needs to air out a bit longer) and I need a second thermostat to dial in the RHP (I only have a Herpstat One). I'll probably be moving her in the week after next.
