Re: New Sunglow poss het anery girl

My mom bought a Nikon D3200 because she wanted a DSLR for her own uses as well, and I was taking some test shots with it. So far, everything is from the auto setting while I start testing out the manual stuff, but although it has some troubles with certain colors (namely Sanji's color tbqh), it's actually letting Nymeria shine! You can see her pink sides so well now.

For now, this is what I will be using but next month I'll be buying a Canon Rebel that will become my regular camera.

It's too bad these cameras aren't one-handed, I'll miss the ease of my PowerShot.

With flash.



Without flash.



With flash on my hand (tried to set her down on top of the T12, but she did not enjoy that at all - I should get a small branch to set her on for future photos).

Re: New Sunglow poss het anery girl

She wasn't sold to me as a coral, just a regular sunglow, no Lipstick line or anything else either. Iirc, one of her siblings (maybe half siblings, but I think he was a full sibling from a previous litter) turned out rather corally, but I don't think she's from the Coral line specifically.

She still hasn't shed, so she's not really going through any color changes, but I've been thinking of bumping her food size now that she's right around 140 grams. I'm getting adult mice for Sanji, and I'll be testing one out with her to see how she takes it before I decide 100% if I'm going to bump her, and that might spark a shed.

Her whole body looked pinkish today, even her reddish-orange saddles/tail were more like a pinkish-orange, like she was maybe starting a shed, but I don't think it's likely. She didn't look like she did in those pre-shed photos I took. I'll keep an eye on her, but I don't think I'll see a shed for a bit longer. It's a lot false alarms with these albino snakes. haha

Even if she was a Coral, they often don't start showing their coralling until they're 1-1.5 years old, so it will be awhile before I could say how she'll turn out.

Here are some more photos, today got above 70F, so I took some outdoor photos of Nymeria. I didn't get to anyone else because the camera got hot taking photos of Draco and Demigod indoors (all of Demi's photos were bust but some of Draco's were good), and the light has faded, but I might get some more chances later. Spring is just around the corner so in another month it might even be warm enough.

Re: New Sunglow poss het anery girl

Some feeding day pics. She tried to eat her mouse folded in half like Sanji, but couldn't do it.

*sigh* Another day without food.


Wait! What's that?


Well I shall live another day!


And her stuffing her face. Or trying to.

Re: New Sunglow poss het anery girl

Well I tested Nymeria out on the adult mice, and I think she's ready to make the move, too! Sanji just got bumped, so I was testing out one of his mice with her. I gave her the very smallest adult mouse I had to test the waters, and it left just a small bulge, so I'll give her a slightly bigger one next time.

You can't see the bulge too well here, because by the time the shutter closed the bulge had gone past the hide. You can see it in the reflection, but it's slightly distorted because plastic. I didn't want to bother her too much and risk a regurge, so this is the best photo I got, but it's still small even for a conservative meal so she'll get a bigger one since she handled this one so easily.



She decided to take after Sanji this meal apparently...





And some other photos.

I don't really know, she could be anywhere from 4'-8' most likely. I didn't ask the size of her parents because I wasn't too worried about her adult size. It will be about 6 years before I find that out. haha Boas take a long time to get to their adult size. Still, she should reach a decent size by the time she turns 4.

Re: New Sunglow poss het anery girl

Well this time I got a more definitive glance at her post-feed bulge, and I'd say she'll be ok be moved up to the larger of the small adult mice in the bag.







Also, she still has yet to shed, this will be the 6th month. Hopefully a couple more meals, with the larger small adult mice, will spark a shed.

Re: New Sunglow poss het anery girl

She looks good but I would just start feeding her rat pups. She will grow quicker and shed more often for you then. Mice don’t don’t have enough nutrients that a baby boa needs to start growing. All you are doing is giving her enough to get by between feeding. Baby boas can eat big prey than you think. I feed all my baby boas one fuzzy rat or a rat pup every 10 to 14 days.

Take care
Tom

I know they can, but that doesn't mean they should have them regularly. I don't have any rats smaller than mediums right now, so she'll have to stick to mice for now. If she still doesn't shed within the next couple of meals, I'll consider buying some rat pups or fuzzies, but I think they're going to be too big for regular meals for her, they're twice the size of these adult mice.

Also, she's growing just fine, but she isn't shedding. She's grown several inches since her last shed (2" that I measured but she's gotten bigger since then), so it's not a matter of bad growth but strangely absent shed cycles.
