    Thank you for keeping us updated on your journey with Miso. I am so happy to hear that she is doing well and recovering steadily. It's wonderful that she has such a caring owner and that you have access to a great vet. Hope she continues to improve and goes on to live a long and healthy life!

    lol! It may well be. I was a little surprised when I found out how much several of my snakes enjoy being able to sit on or in anything that's made of cloth with a velvety, super-soft texture. Ever since realizing it I've made that option available both in and out of their enclosures. Who knew that the 'magic snake blankie' would be such a hit?! Pictured is Sugar in his 'blankie'. He'll sit contentedly in that thing for hours.

    It goes to show just how important the sense of touch is to snakes: just because they have scales doesn't mean they don't love soft things to snuggle with.

    I wanted to share an update on Miso. Her improvement has been gradual and steady, though sometimes my heart ached when I saw her being nervous or cautious in situations where previously she would have been completely calm and fearless.

    But today it was like someone flipped a switch. She was in BIG EXPLORE mode all afternoon. Sitting in her enclosure was not an option, so she climbed right out onto my hands. She wanted to climb everything, smell everything, check everything out. She used all of her muscles, and coiled and gripped firmly, all the way down to the tip of her tail. Almost four months later, this is the first day I really feel like Miso is entirely back to herself, and I am really happy and grateful - because I love this little snake. Here's hoping she has many good years of exploring ahead.

    I am so glad she sounds like she’s back to where she was before! Fingers crossed she maintains her confidence now.
