 My Baby

Had her for about two weeks now, and she loves being handled, and exploring. She is a het for albino. I believe she is about 3.5 months old. Been having a hard time feeding her but overall she is doing good. As soon as I figure out how to put these pictures of her up, I will.

these snakes like small cages, so either have her in a 10 gal with lots of clutter or a 9 qaurt container system...this is the number one reason they do no want to eat they are very shy when eating. if shes in a tank cover 3 sides with balck/green paper tp block out light (they like darkness too) she may start feeding better by next feed who knows.

mine went through growth spurts and selectivly likes to pig out and then eat normal for a bit

I keep my baby in a 40 gallon breeder and he is dong fine. I have it really cluttered with branches and plants and i have a dark hide box. he has been eating like a champ. My advice is that it would probably be better for you to keep him in a smaller tank but if you have him in a larger one just clutter it up with decorations, give it lots of places to hide.

Ok, I know I’m responding late but thanks for the information. It’s very helpful. I’m able to get her to eat but now she won’t use the bathroom or shred. Am I doing something wrong here? Would a warm bath promote shredding ?

I think once she gets used to her new tank things will even out.
Warm baths and high humidity helps with shedding.
