    My first Coastal, Lizzy is from Mike as well. Ive only talked with him on the phone even though he is only a few miles from me. One of these days Ill get by to see him and his setup.

    I look forward to updates on your new girl. Congrats!
    No kidding?! Thats cool, Man. Id try to go check out what hes got going on if I had the chance. That sounds like a blast!

    I've heard it's a Carpet thing as well, especially when young. I lucked out with Yafe in that sense, as he's been chill since day 1, but he was 1 year old when I got him and had been chill according to the breeder, for some time. I get an occasional hiss, but never a bite attempt and he calms down once he's out and about and not being taken off his perch!

    You have plenty of time to work with her before she can do damage and I imagine she will calm down pretty quick. Keep us posted.

    I forgot to mention that I've read Carpets like "bigger prey." It's supposed to help their feeding response and ambush response. If temps are correct, it should not be an issue down the road. I've seen Yafe take down the same prey size as Feliz (BCC) at 25% smaller weight. Feliz was eating weaned rats (about 40G) at 375G and Yafe at 300G. Boas like and should be fed smaller prey, but Carpets can handle bigger items and seem to enjoy it.

    Having said that, get her eating well on what she's been fed before you start with the bigger items, IMO.

    When Yafe was getting over his RI, and was reluctant to eat, I offered a bigger prey item finally and he nailed it. Not sure if that's what did it, but I've been giving larger prey items since and he's doing great.

    Congrats and welcome to the club JMCROOK! I'm sure you will find carpets are a little more rewarding than the reitcs. What is she going to be housed in once she is done with QT? I love watching mine arboreal hunting.

    Thanks, temp! Shell honestly probably be in the tub for a while. Shes so small I think shed be a bit overwhelmed with much more space than this. She was in a 4ish qt tub at the breeder and this tub is 12qts. Regardless, shell do a bit of growing out in an AP T8 once I get boas moved into a divided T25. Not as much height as Id like but Ive got time to plan her forever home. One option is half of my behemoth cage 48x32x24. Id like to give her at least 4x2x2.
