    JM has the carpet bug, and I really am happy he does.

    If I did everything over again, I'd have two boa constrictors and 2 carpets.

    JM, I can't wait to see this one in a naturalistic cage setup with the perches!
    Thanks. Iíve been busy so really didnít have much time.

    I tried catching up and read about your recent dealing with Wallace. Retic are a lot of work. I miss Caesar but honestly, as active as relics are, anything over 6 feet was just something I wasnít really comfortable dealing with solo. An 8 foot boa is MUCH different than an equal size retic.

    If I was to redo everything, I would have started with gilas and GTPs sooner and just stuck to pure local boas like BCC, BCL, BCO etc. Although all my critters were definitely learning experiences and I donít regret owning any of them. Luckily none of them were really defensive

    Fresh coat of paint on the sassy shoelace and weighed in at a whopping 36grams hah!

    Going out for a friends 40th bday dinner and then little Sally Jo will get her first f/t fuzzy mouse when I get back. Love the nearly perfect symmetry of her head stamp. Half a scale shy of perfect

    Thanks man! Iím hoping to see more growth here once she starts getting more developed prey items in her. Doesnít miss a beat when it comes to eating so I think sheíll do well when moved up a prey size

    It will happen. She will start growing like a weed. Yafe went from 140G in January last year to 400G at the end of the year (2019). I started him on Rat Pups at 165G and he didn't look back. He's pounding weaned rats now, and has for some time, and is almost ready for small rats. He's also spent much of the year eating every other week.

    I know she's nowhere near 150G now, but he was 100G or so when I got him and just over a year. He's also an IJ/Darwin so on the smaller side.

    The more nutritious prey will make a big difference.

    Keep us posted on your little girl.

    I've got Fernie on hoppers every 5-7 days now. And something tells me she'll be moving up in no time. She's a great eater too. She's halfway out of her enclosure before I even get it open at feeding time.

    Lmfao! Thatís her favorite leisure activity. This animal has bit me probably 50+ times and still not drawn blood. But only when she sees a somewhat quick moving object about the size of a finger. She wonít strike at a closed hand.

    Just took care of her first fuzzy in short order, and evidently is wondering where her next one is

    She's looking great JMC! I'll let you in on a little secret about carpets. They can take surprisingly large meals without any issues. I'm not talking about anything extreme but carpets can take mice fuzzys out of the egg. Your girl could easily smash a mouse hopper. I remember when I got my first carpet and asked the breeder, Nick Mutton, what I should feed him. The yearling snake weighed a little over 100g and he told me a jumbo mouse would be just fine. I thought to myself no way, but who am I to argue with the guy who literally wrote the book on carpet pythons. It amazed me to see how easily he slammed what I thought was surely too big of a meal. Since then I've been impressed a few times seeing the meal sizes these snakes can take down. Again, I'm not advocating for any type of power feeding, or extreme meal sizes, but these are not BPs or corn snakes. You can push the envelope a bit with carpets.
