    I like their big eyes & "bandit mask" too. Yup, nature's got this.

    Bit of an overdue update, but a number of things have changed. Went to the local show the other week and got some larger cork bark flats to make more stable platforms for her climbing shelves and used the smaller pieces that used to be awkwardly jigsawed across the brackets on top of the slabs to serve as hides.


    She greatly appreciates these changes.

    I also got crews of springtails and isopods for all 3 of the snake enclosures to go bioactive which is nice.


    And finally, after her most recent shed I have some exciting news. Her blues are starting to come in!

    I can totally see why she appreciates the upgrades. Especially that "sky-hide"- very nice. She's growin' like a weed, too.

    Indeed, this is her full length now and she's not even halfway done.

    Didn't musk this time, but she did take a swipe at my other arm.

    Don't think she'll ever not be short-fused.

    Only time will tell if she ever mellows out- but that would be boring anyway, right? She's making sure you get your money's worth.

    That IS part of why I got her yes. She adds a little more spice to my life for sure.

    So the past couple of days have been rough... She unexpectedly had a REALLY bad shed, just pieces everywhere. Even after putting her in a container with wet paper towels for a bit, soaking the substrate and giving her a day to try and slough off the rest, she still had quite a bit left. Had to manually rub and carefully peel off the rest, which of course was mostly her lower neck up to her head. To her credit she only bit me twice during the process.



    I was dutifully keeping things humid while she was in blue, but I think what happened was I sprayed everything except the hide she was under (so I didn't disturb her), and she never left that hide so she was bone dry the whole time. That and just before she shed she went up to the highest platform where it's the driest which no doubt didn't help.
