Re: Sanji

Thank you very much for taking the time to write that up. I'm trying to figure out what to use for substrate.

Re: Sanji

Coco coir (essentially what ecoearth is) mixed with orchid bark is what I'd use. Holds moisture without being permanently damp to touch.

Re: Sanji

Sanji is currently in shed, I plan on getting details once he sheds. He'll probably be a little lighter since he hasn't eaten in a month between biweekly feedings and going into shed, but he'll still be close.

Re: Sanji

He still looks nice even when in shed. Can't wait to see post shed pics.

Here they are!







Here he actually looks his size - right around 3.5' according to SerpWidgets.



You can see his shed to the right.



BRBs have such smooth scales.



I weighed him after a shed and a poop, and he came in at 314 grams.

Re: Sanji

They're awesome looking for sure. Definitely live up to their name.

Re: Sanji

Well apparently the weaned rats I got this time were bigger than the last batch...I thought I had a small rat when I took Sanji's rat out. It didn't look too bad sizewise but I knew it was a tad on the larger size when he wrapped it. I'll just give him a little extra time before his next meal and try to grab a smaller rat.

I opened his tub the next day and he was not happy about it. He struck at the lid as I lifted it and sat in this defense posture the entire time. I didn't bug him for long and didn't touch him, though, just wanted at least a few new pics.

Re: Sanji

I keep forgetting to record weights, so I'll have to re-weigh him when he poops, but Sanji is still clearly growing. He should be ready for his own 4'x2' by end of the year I'm thinking. He's still too small for me to put in there yet, just because he takes up so little space due to his small girth, but he's closing in on 4' now. I think his last length measurement was 3'8" several months ago.



These ones are from today, he also ate yesterday, and he may be ready for smalls by the time he turns 3. My rainbows move up in prey size a lot slower, though, because of their thinner girth. But, as you can see, the weaned rats make only a small bulge (and mostly in height), so once small rats barely leave a bulge I'll move him up.

Re: Sanji

The new scale says he's 13.9 ounces, which is 394 grams. He's currently beginning a shed cycle, but these photos are from about a week ago. He's a derp. haha
