Re: Crona, Anery Motley

Took Crona out yesterday and he gave the camera a couple swipes, but was good outside of that. Deep in a really dark phase, too.

According to SerpWidgets, he's nearly exactly 2', only a fraction of an inch off. lol Close enough for me. Due to his snappiness today, I didn't want to chance flattening him out and getting him more pissy.

This photo was taken during his snapping "spree."

Re: Crona, Anery Motley

Got some more recent shots of Crona. The last weight I grabbed off him was 126 grams, and of course the 2' length from my previous post. I have decided to move him from his 10 day schedule to 12-14 days. Unlike Tirel and Nymeria, he will be eating as normal over this winter, but next winter he will be fed half as often just like the girls, and the following winter completely fasted. Unless something makes me think otherwise.

He looks like he's grown a little bit since the last photo shoot! Not an extreme amount, but just a tad.







I'm hoping the sheen I'm seeing on him tonight is predicting a shed cycle to come...The camera doesn't really pick up on it too well but I've noticed a snake's iridescence changes just slightly right before they start to darken and then go blue. Even my sunglow girl Nymeria does it, although her iridescence is mostly pink and purple hues.

Actually I've found something different to be true in my snakes. The iridescence gets a little more noticeable and it looks different than normal. Up until they go blue, then it's gone until they clear up and by then it looks mostly normal until they shed.

Yup, he ate about 2 or 3 days ago so he was dark from that. When he's light, he's amazingly light. Makes it a little more difficult to determine when he's shedding.

Re: Crona, Anery Motley

Well it's almost a month later and no shed, who would have known a motley would throw me through a loop as much as an albino...his light/dark phases are just so different.

I put a photo of him up on SerpWidgets and he's grown another 2"-3" so there should be a shed soon I would assume...



Finally got a shot of his tail! It's black except for the tip.









Then he grabbed my hair tie and would not let go.

Re: Crona, Anery Motley

I went around and photographed almost everyone tonight, so I could have recent photos. lol Of course, the 3 quarantines came last, and the only one I touched was Crona because I wanted to see if he was going into shed. It's hard to tell but I don't think so. Crona is almost as hard to tell an upcoming shed as an albino...his dark and light phases are just so extreme and his belly is a really light gray so any pinkish hues are hard to see. His dark phases also vary in intensity.

He's in a dark phase in all these photos.



The best photo of his chin to date.





I wish I had the flash on, but at least I still captured this silly moment.

Re: Crona, Anery Motley

He hasn't been on small mice long and he's already looking like he'll need an upgrade soon. The regular adult mice are way too big for him atm though, so he'll be on these awhile longer until he gains a tad more size. Nymeria was on small adult mice for maybe a few months before she was able to make the jump to jumbos, so it seems Crona is still growing very closely to Nymeria's rate.



And the next day, no sign of that mouse. There was a bit of a bulge in person, but I couldn't get the camera to focus at an angle that would show it (my shadow didn't allow enough light for the lens).

Re: Crona, Anery Motley

Well I think I spoke too soon. Crona went blue on the 18th, only 10 days after I took the photos above. He shed 3 days ago, and I fed him and weighed him this morning, and he came out at 148 grams. Once he digests a bit, I'm going to get another SerpWidgets photo and see if he'll let me stretch him out along my bed again for a more exact measurement.

I pulled him out on the 18th to give him clean paper towels to discover a very unhappy shedding Crona. He hiss/snorted like an angry cat he was so upset. Once he shed he gave no complaints about me touching him. lol





I came home after running errands the day he shed to find him out and about and clearly freshly-shed, so I took him out immediately for post-shed photos. He was in a lovely light phase.
