    Thanks & good to hear from you. She just ate f/t pinky #5 last night & she's doing great! So tiny but full-size instincts...uses all of her cage but is still shy, as is
    expected, & her digestion is excellent. I sure wasn't expecting this...at all! (faint) But that's just my luck I guess? Some people win at lotto...me, I win snakes!?

    I must admit, it's nice having a tiny snake toddling around the house again... Especially one that's so easy to please.

    Nature pulls some incredible stunts sometimes, in an effort to reproduce, & so far, she's "all systems go".

    BTW, in the past, the eggs that "looked viable" always ended up going bad eventually, so I don't know what made me decide to try "planting" them this year?
    Same reason that folks play the lottery, I guess?

    Not much to update on Milagro: she's doing very well...she looks & acts "empty" every four days so that's when she eats another f/t pinky as she just now did.

    Her digestion is excellent...I haven't normally fed hatchlings this often, but I've been going by her appearance & behavior, & pinkies aren't very filling.

    She's been active in her cage...I enjoyed seeing her basking on her branch this morning for a while, but she's still pretty shy. I cleaned her cage a little while ago
    & held her briefly before I put her back in, & just before I fed her- she's pretty squirmy yet (quite normal) but didn't try to bite, & it didn't deter her appetite one bit.

    She's a great little rat snake... I've also "caught" her taking a bath in her water dish a few times, so I just gave her one that's a little bigger. Florida rat snakes
    do like water...occasional soaking is not a "sign" of anything, it's just what they do.

    Still have the last 5 "infertile" eggs incubating...not due yet.

    Nagging will get you nowhere...just saying. I'm very busy & it's not anywhere near the top of my list.

    Re: "Milagro" (translation "miracle")

    Update:
    She took another pinkie last night (5 days since last one) and she ALMOST took it right from the tongs, but chickened out at the last minute. She had been hiding
    in a mound of Carefresh-&-paper shreds, & she pursued the pinkie to the other side of her cage before realizing just how exposed she was and retreated into her
    hiding place. So I had better things to do than wait & closed up her cage, but after a few minutes, I came back to check & she had already downed it from where
    I left it (she had to come all the way out again) & was even following the motion of my wiggling finger (outside the cage) again. She's gradually getting braver but
    she's so tiny, & her instinctive caution is normal. Even though she's not quite ready to eat off the tongs, she doesn't have far to go, & she wastes no time once I've
    showed her there's food to be had...she comes out to find it. Very easy little snake...

    I've also noticed that even when I've changed her cage arrangement, she has no trouble finding where the UTH is to warm her tummy on it. It amazes me how such
    a tiny creature can be so aware. (She's still only about 12" long & only a smidgen wider than a pencil.)
