    He's starting to take on some of his Mom's yellows (she's bright yellow). He's definitely got some of Dads Vandeveeter coloring, but he's already brighter than his Dad. I'm guessing he'll land somewhere in the middle as far as resembling one parent over the other.

    Best part is he's definitely turned the corner with handling. He's always aware of his surroundings, but not on high alert all the time anymore and he hasn't struck in ages. He's lost the majority of his head shyness too, I can pet his head no problem most of the time. If he's not feeling it he simply pulls away and I take his cue and leave his head alone.
    Great to hear that he's calmed down so much. Yafe doesn't like his head being touched, but tells me nicely. It's his prerogative and I respect that. The boas let me pet their heads all day, they could care less. Solana doesn't care and Figment freaks out. So does Shayna. It's important to know our animals individual tendencies and likes and dislikes.

    Cannot wait to see him grow some more, Craig. The contrast of the yellow and black is going to be stunning as he ages, especially with some size.

    LOL. It's just a fish tank light I mounted, but has many choices of colors being LED. This selection produces the right amount of light for Yafe, but the blue hue is cool. The original light that came with the boaphile (fluorescent) got damaged in shipment. Jeff Ronne has been so good to me, I didn't bother him for another one, although I know he'd sent it. I wanted to experiment anyway. This gave me a chance.

    Frankly, I prefer his colors in natural light. Not as dramatic but so rich and so full of nuance.

    Re: Morellia Madness

    Below is a video I posted on Yafe's thread that shows how gentle and predictable Carpet Python's can be when being handled. Yafe is a dream in that department. He has never struck or even looked at me in a defensive way, although he has been known to hiss when first picking him up.

    As many of you know he was very sick with an RI when I got him at about 1 year old and 105G. He was a trooper through treatment (injections and nebulization) and when he hit the 500G mark mellowed a ton more. He's about 715g now.
