    It's so much fun to watch them grow, anyway. I'll have to go weigh my little rat snake Milagro, I'm sure she's even tinier than yours, lol.

    Wow, and I thought the last BP I got was small at 79g, That's less than 1/2 of that size. I'd almost be afraid to hold something that small.

    So as promised, I just weighed Milagro, & after 9 pinky-meals so far (she's currently 'empty' & due to feed again now) she weighs all of 14 grams!
    She's noticeably bigger & stronger now than when first hatched...I'd have to guess (since I didn't weigh her immediately) that she weighed in about 8-9 grams then.

    And yeah, that's why I haven't done much handling of Milagro yet...colubrids can be SO tiny & delicate, it's best to let them grow for a while first. Just now handled her easily-she's never tried to bite, but she is prone to suddenly bolting out of your hands if you don't know what you're doing. Fortunately I've had tons of practice with hatchling corns, rat snakes & kings, etc. It takes a light touch to keep them calm, & they're best handled over soft territory (like a bed) just in case.

    Craig, I didn't mean to sidetrack from your Bredli girl...it's just fun to compare what it's like to experience these different kinds of snakes. The tiniest ones I've ever
    raised were hatchling desert glossy snakes...I never weighed them but they were tiny even compared to hatchling corns- only about 7" long & slender.

    Enjoy Fernie while she's tiny...they're much easier to hold onto when they get bigger, but they're "only little once".

    Re: My Bredli girl has a name, meet...

    Fernie is looking shiny and new after her first shed with me, so a few pics. She wasn't sitting still though, so not the best pics.
    She's already doing really well handling too. I handled her for a decent little while today and she was a complete sweetheart. Not a single strike and only jerked her head back into S position a few times.
    She's already showing signs of progress with each handling session, so I'm feeling confident she'll be a chill girl once she grows into some confidence.

    Maybe I'm losing what's left of my mind (ha!!) but I swear I'm seeing more orange coloration in her head after only one shed with me. I'll be looking forward to her next shed to compare.

    So far, I've learned a few things since Fernie came home, but mostly...
    I should have gotten into morellia sooner!!!! Hahahaha. I'm really enjoying this girl, and seeing her perched so often is super cool to me. I'm smitten, it's official...
