Re: Auntie Rachel-Central American B. imperator

She's looking great! About the same size as my Nymeria, too. She's stopped growing since I put her on jumbo mice, hasn't grown any length in 4 months. I haven't measured her yet, but I think she may have grown an inch or two since putting her on weaned rats and feeding monthly. Since I haven't actually measured yet I'm just going to assume she hasn't grown any. She's gaining weight though and is right around the 400 gram mark.

I think you're going to have a decent-sized girl on your hands.

Re: Auntie Rachel-Central American B. imperator

A. Rachel she'd about an hour ago so managed to grab some photos straight after. Stunning girl and so well tempered.

She's doing great - up to around 3.5' I'd say, maybe a hair longer and haven't weighed her for a while. Currently on a weaner rat every 3-5 weeks randomly spaced within that timeframe.

Ty. She is the perfect example of why I like wild types over morphs. Imo the natural beauty just can't be beat.

Re: Auntie Rachel-Central American B. imperator

Had Aunty Rachel out again the other day mainly as Finley wanted to see all the snakes. She thought she'd add some ambience to our lamp.

I love this snake so much...

Re: Auntie Rachel-Central American B. imperator

Auntie Rachel? Named for a living or deceased aunt?

My neighbors across the street, the wife portion of the neighbors, is squeamish about snakes; and when I was unpacking my viv, after transporting it back from BoaMaster (Bedford VA) yesterday, drove there and back with three large dogs in a pickup, one in full shed, she was outside and I told her I was going to name one of my snakes after her. She repeatedly thanked me for the honor but vigorously asked me NOT to, between my laughs and my insistence I was going to. I still think Tamika sounds like a good name for a snake...maybe I'll get a female viper after all...

Re: Auntie Rachel-Central American B. imperator

No, my little boy named him after his favourite nursery tutor. They called them all aunties!

Ty. Tbh I go by eye these days when it comes to meals and have pretty much given up on feed charts, weighing etc - don't see the point for a healthy snake.

If i suspected a problem I'd keep specific of course but it gives me more time just to enjoy my animals
