    Bitey wasn't the one that regurged...it was Bean.

    Correct,

    I think I'm making this thread confusing, too many snakes with almost the same sounding name

    Only because some ppl don't read from the beginning, they come in at the end & make assumptions, lol. Not to worry.

    Well it was feeding time for Bitey last night, She's learning quick, and seems to be a good eater...

    I warmed up a small 9g mouse, and could no more than remove the lock on the top of her cage and her head was peeking out already

    I lowered the mouse in gave it a small wiggle and Bam, hit and coiled, eaten pretty quickly, then back into the hide Lol.

    So fingers cross she keeps it down again, That's her 4th feeding with no issues,

    So maybe Wed / Thur I'll get her out for a short 10 minute handling session.


    Going on 2 weeks no feeding for Bean.... 1 week to go fer her, the smalllest mouse I have is a 9g, So I need to get a few smaller 6-7g to start her back up on

    then hopefully she's back on track....

    Sounds like Bitey is well-named, lol...I hope you can get Bean back on track in a week from now. Always some challenges when we keep snakes.

    Re: Regurge from baby BP, Now what?

    Bitey shed yesterday, wasn't 1 whole piece, more like 3 large pieces, Looks like it all came off, eye caps - tail tip,

    I'll have her out tonite to double check all the shed is off. She should be good to go, fingers crossed no issues creep up with her.

    I got her at the end of last month, so a well snake check up at the vet is next on the list for her.

    Bean still patiently waits to be fed. I go to the local pet store (different big box) to find her a box of smaller food (frozen mice), grab 2 different sizes,

    ask the employee do they have a scale so I can weigh a few from each box, to see which has the sizes I'm looking for. Employee opens up box and says, just pull them out if you want to see how big they are. Ugh, I just buy both boxes, and figure between Bean and Bitey I'll use them up eventually.

    Regurge from baby BP, Now what?

    Hi

    Next time itís in shed mode spray the viv well daily THEN when the eyes clear and it gets its colour back you spray well a FEW times daily ..
    Thatís usually enough to guarantee a perfect shed unless youíve got a high powered ceramic heat lamp drying the place out .

    Thanks,

    I have a spay bottle I use to bump humidity, She was in a 10 gallon glass tank with foil over the top. Humidity was 58%-63% guess I need to bump those number a little. No CHE or overhead heat was on, just room ambient temp of 77-79. she has a UTH set at 88* for belly heat.

    [

    Itís just a case of bumping up the humidity in those crucial days after the eyes clear and the skin comes off ..

    I found Bean out snooping around this afternoon, her first feeding since the regurge is coming up,

    So I hope this is a good sign that she is recovering, and getting hungry
