Re: New Sunglow poss het anery girl

So I've been debating on naming her Nymeria, but I've already used one GoT reference so I've been trying to find another one to use, but I'm having a hard time. I may just go with it at this point. haha

She's taken her first meal successfully and is closing on her second meal soon. She's being fed small hopper mice every 10 days.

Since this weekend, she's begun exploring her tub and using her hot side since I bumped her temps up. She especially seems to enjoy her vine, as I see her in it a lot while she's out and about. In the few handling sessions I've had with her, she's been very docile and is very tolerant of me touching her head.

If she takes this next meal as easily as her first, I'll begin handling her regularly.

A picture I missed from the day I got her.


And my favorites from the last photo/handling sessions she had.

Re: New Sunglow poss het anery girl

I really really love her! That colors are amazing (even if I don't like albino type morphs), and she has really nice, clear head <3
It's so sad that they are rather big and heavy as adults

Thanks! Yes, it's unfortunate if you're not able to care for a snake of their size. They are pretty heavy relative to their size, they're pure muscle. I have an adult male BCI that's decent-sized for a male so I pretty much know what I'm getting into luckily.

Might I suggest looking into some of the smaller boa constrictor locales? There are many that will stay under 6', and if you get a male they'd stick around the 3'-4' range. Things like Nicaraguan BCI, Pearl Island, Crawl Cay, etc. Peruvian long-tailed boas (Boa constrictor longicauda) are another subspecies that, although they can potentially get 7', they're not nearly as heavy-bodied as a BCI. I think there's an owner of a pair of BCL that say their longis are half the weight of their BCI of the same length.

She will definitely be a stunner! This girl was actually meant to be a hold back, but the breeder ended up needing to make room for another snake he got to fit into a project of his, so I was able to end up with this beautiful girl! Now, hopefully I'll have a few projects with her in future. lol

Re: New Sunglow poss het anery girl

She's taken her second meal successfully, and it's been 2 days now, so it may be about time to start getting her out! No pics right now but I'll try to get some on my days off. The only snakes not currently sitting on a fresh meal are Cloud and Bud, who's still throwing a tantrum over his rats. And Sanji maybe.

Re: New Sunglow poss het anery girl

Congratulations on the pretty sunglow female she has some nice pink sides on her. She should grow up to be a very nice looking adult. Good luck with your future breeding plans with her.

Take care
Tom

Thanks! I'm hoping she'll hold onto her colors nicely, most of the adult sunglows I've seen pictures of have held their patterns nicely but a lot have yellowed/oranged out as well. It's going to be a long wait to see how she turns out! haha

She's taken her third meal without hesitation as well, so I think it's safe to say she's 100% settled in!

Here she is hanging out on her magnetic vine.

Re: New Sunglow poss het anery girl

Looks like her first shed with me has begun! It appears to be easier to tell when she's going into shed than I thought it would be.

Re: New Sunglow poss het anery girl

She shed today! Sorry about the fly intruding in the one photo....Weighed her at 88 grams, and then fed her. Sat there with the mouse in her mouth for several minutes before finally wrapping it and then eating it.











The mouse was a little smaller than I thought, but it should still be fine, it's not that small really.

Re: New Sunglow poss het anery girl

I took her out last night and she just sat there loosely reared up at me, just staring. lol



And idk if my eyes are playing tricks on me or not, but she already looks noticeably bigger...She came to me at 80 grams on April 26 and I weighed her at 97 grams last night. So it's possible.

Re: New Sunglow poss het anery girl

So I measured her on SerpWidgets and according to the website she's grown 4"...I then stretched her out and that appears to be true. I couldn't get her 100% stretched out next to the measuring tape, but both her head and an inch or two of her tail wrap around my 5 or 10 gallon tank, which is 20" long. Haven't weighed her again, but I would not be surprised if she's already exceeded 100 grams now.







If she keeps growing like this, she'll easily end up bigger than Cloud was at a year....

She's still eating hoppers every 10 days, but she's close to moving up a size.

Re: New Sunglow poss het anery girl

More pics! Gonna weigh her in a few days.

Doesn't look it in this pic too much, but she's getting a wide back end that splays out like she's full of poo, so I may spread her feedings out by a few days. She's growing rather rapidly so I paired with a decrease in muscle tone it shouldn't be too bad, but I'm still debating on it.




Here's a photo that mostly captures her true colors. It just doesn't capture her pink sides very well.
