    Re: Jeff Shemesh - VPI T+ Sunglow Motley Jungle het Anery

    Offered Jeff a small F/T mouse tonight. He was not shy this time. Nailed quickly and coiled. Last time, he pulled into his hide to eat. Tonight, middle of the tank and gobbling it down! Either way, 2/2. Sunday will be two weeks and a digested Jeff. I will begin gentle handling sessions with him next week.

    Yeah, and zero hesitation! I was very happy. He's really settled in now.

    Of note, I've heard from multiple sources, including Jeff Ronne, that the VPI T+ animals need to be grown a little slower than other morphs. More like a BCC. Jeff Ronne has said that their internals grow slower and you can't grow them fast especially in the first year. Not sure why, and they do not appear to have longevity issues, but who really knows?

    At 11 months next week, Jeff is about 150G. I like how BoaKings grows all there animals slow, but he's probably a good size for him. I plan to feed weekly for a while, as I did for Behira and Feliz at the same age and prey size. However, I will be feeding slightly smaller prey to Jeff, more like Feliz, than with Behira (not that I pushed Behira, I am just going to be a little slower about moving up in size and feeding on the smaller size). Nothing wrong with a slow(er) grown Boa .

    It shocks me when I see breeders selling 2017 or even 2018 animals that are already as big as Behira (June 2016 baby) or even much bigger. "Breeding size" they say. Yeah, but for what? You sacrificed that animals life expectancy and health! I would never buy from those breeders.

    Oh well, all we can do is educate and do our best with our animals.

    Jeff is doing awesome. He was really exploring his quarantine tank the past week. However, since last feeding, he's been to hot side, cool side, hot side, cool side, etc. He's really got it down. He spends most of his day in one of his hides, usually with his head peeking out. Nighttime is cruising around and waiting for FOOD!

    I had him out tonight and he is such a wonderful guy. He's really inquisitive, but gentle and calm and docile. Yes, he's a handsome devil, but I really like how chill he is too.

    Took a few pictures too. His colors and pattern are awesome. However, I love me some black speckling on a yellow snake!

    Jeff left me a present yesterday. He weighed in at 153G.

    He's really doing awesome. Pounded his last mouse and is as gentle and chill as can be.

    He eats again on Sunday and I assume the same - pounding!

    I couldn't be happier with him.
