    Jeff was out exploring last night and I actually caught him drinking from his water bowl (I got lucky). As soon as the lights went out today, out he came from his hide and began looking around again.

    I am happy to see him (seemingly) adjusting well. He's being left alone but his quarantine tank is in my office, so I do get to view him much of the time.

    The picture below was him this morning. "I am a snake, and a little one, so I hide. However, I am also a Boa, so I peek out so I don't miss anything, like FOOD!"

    I didn't want to inundate with pictures, but I decided to post a few more after going through pics. These are iPhone pics, but the iPhone 11 Pro seems to do a good job picking up his colors. He's really a "bright" creamy yellow.

    Also, I wanted to get him on schedule for feeding (with the others who eat Sunday), but didn't want to wait until Sunday. He happily ate a small mouse tonight. He's 142G so that seemed appropriate. So I'll give another smaller meal next week on Monday and then switch to Sundays on a go forward basis.

    He's been out the past two nights looking for food and as soon as the light went out, out came his head! He knows what's up.

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

    Good news! I checked on Jeff today and the mouse was indeed gone. He had pulled into his hide to eat so I wasn't positive. I figured, because he's in my office I probably would have smelled it. However, I always double check to make sure, usually within a day, but I wanted to leave him alone for two.

    Also, I will feed again Thursday or Friday next week, so 9-10 days after his first meal, and the move to Sundays. Better to go slow with him than too fast.

    He is so incredibly chill. It's unreal how calm he is for this age and size.

    I snapped a few pictures of him in his tank (I removed the hide to make sure the mouse was gone - he does have two hides ).

    Was also an excuse to check temps, and take a quick peek, and snap some photos. Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Don't tell .

    Seriously, not exactly handling him much. He's in quarantine and settling in. However, he's a boa, and is out and exploring at night and even peeking out during the day. He ate. I think he will be good soon. He was also handled frequently by the breeder.
