    Ah I am way too tired! I read the title and thought you were talking about an actual cheeto... Beautiful snake by the way! Good luck!

    Good luck with Cheeto- great looking snake & perfect name for her.

    Surprise!!!

    So little update here. I think the swelling on cheeto was due to some gastrointestinal problems because shortly after started having some regurgitation problems. Cheeto is all better now &keeping food down, but another thing that may have contributed to the regurge was that one day I noticed cheeto started striking at gravy, the garden Tiger male &chasing him around, then wrestling him down &shoving his face in the dirt. I was like this is backwards, it should be the male chasing the female not the other way around. So I pulled cheeto out, probed &sure enough- the animal that was sold to me as female &even I probed as female was in fact male. He must have been clenching when I probed the first time lol. So I had to seperate them &start the search for an adult female as my other Halloween female is currently Gravid as well. I was having terrible luck, all the breeders I was contacting either didn't have any adults for sale or all their adult females were already paired up for the season &then after a week or two of giving up, a decided to hop onto morphmarket where I saw a beauuuuutiful yellow tiger adult female that had already bred once two or three years ago with no complications up for auction, which was only at like 300 dollars. So I waited until it got down to the last 15 minutes &started my bids. Which someone else had the same idea so we got into a little bidding war but I finally ended up winning her for only 700 dollars. I got her &she is the most chill, absolutely stunning Amazon I have ever had, she came right out of the bag to hang out on my seven year old son's arm (he had his little glove on) &hasn't even tried to act defensive or strike in any way since I've gotten her. Which is good cos she is HUGE (about 7.3 feet). So even though I wanted to breed this orange Calico (so I thought) "female" to a male tiger I am still able to breed HIM to a female tiger so hopefully end up with some tiger calicos. After her quarantine I put her into his cage &he was on her in less than five minutes &a couple minutes after that they locked up for about 3 hours. He has been locking her everyday since then which had been a little over a week now, he must be exhausted!!!

    So even though it was a rude awakening surprise, it still ended up working out for me. Fingers crossed for the best, I will upload some pictures right after I post this up.

    Hope everyone is having a good season &happy spring break!!!
