Re: Crona, Anery Motley

Some more photos, taken last night. This time he made a short hiss at me, but was ok once I got him out. Some of my snakes are such drama queens, adorable drama queens, though. Luckily the few prone to hissing rarely ever hiss anymore and when they do they barely get a full breath out (unless in shed).

I tried unsuccessfully to measure him by hand, but he doesn't appear to have grown past 28" yet.







His chin and tail are the coolest parts of his. I love the weird little clear spots on his chin, and how just his tail is black.

Yup, the extreme difference always throws me off when I'm trying to guess if he's starting a shed cycle or not. :/ Most of his pattern almost fades away in his light phase, and his tail looks like it WANTS to fade away. lol Then in his dark phase everything is dark, even his background color.

Re: Crona, Anery Motley

Crona was out and crawling around and in a light phase so I took him out. I'm thinking he may be big enough to move up to the medium mice, I have a few small ones I can try him on first.

Re: Crona, Anery Motley

I gave him the smallest of the mediums, and it left no bulge, so next I'll be trying a normal-sized medium. If it seems too big, I'll switch between mediums and small adults until he's big enough to eat them every time.

Re: Crona, Anery Motley

Crona was the last one to get outdoor time yesterday. He didn't seem to enjoy the grass as much as the other two, he seemed pretty indifferent. Just chose a tuft of grass and curled up in it peeking up at me from in between a few grass stems.



He's got such a pretty gray color though, and not a drop of red anywhere.











He ended up defaulting to his usual bracelet position.

Re: Crona, Anery Motley

Peeking at me.









His itty bitty baby spur. This is as close as I could get while still able to focus.

Re: Crona, Anery Motley

And the last photo. He was wrapped around my wrist like a bracelet until I got up and started walking back in. Then he started reaching out with his head and I held out my hand for him to crawl on.

Re: Crona, Anery Motley

He is so awesome! If we ever get a 3rd snake I want to go for something bigger than our kingsnakes...but I fear a boa might be "too big". But man it's really tempting when I see ones like yours!

Most Boa imperators stay manageable - even females rarely exceed much over 7-8' and are generally calm snakes as adults. Of course there are outliers in both size and temperament but they're very much the exception.

Love boas-my favourite snake I think.

Bag - she's looking good. Beautiful body tone but then you feed yours properly.

7'-8' isn't really all that big, but many people do feel that is too large for their tastes. In which case, there are plenty of dwarf localities to choose from that shouldn't reach, let alone exceed, 6'. Tarahumara, Crawl Cay, Nicaraguan, etc. They get about the length of a ball python but much thinner.

Thanks! This is actually one of my males, though. He's starting to chunk up like Nymeria did around this size, so I may expect a similar body tone as he matures, but he's still a wee guy yet so we'll see. I love how his colors are progressing.

Apologies to the snake .

It's nice when they start to fill out. I'll have to post some photos of Aunty Rachel. Her growth still surprised me. She's on a weaner rat every 3-5 weeks (I'm intentionally random between these points) and she's still growing like a weed.

Because of various things, like her shed cycle and a third freezer failure, I have yet to get Nymeria back on a 2 week schedule, but I swear she's also still growing. I haven't weighed her recently, but she was just under 470 grams last I weighed her iirc. She appears to have grown more in length since then as well. Crona's growing a bit slower, but being male that may be expected. Plus, he started out smaller than she did. She was 80 grams at only a month old and he was ~80 grams at 4 months old.
