Talking Update on Jerkface

Hello all! It's been a while since I've posted a status update on my BRB, Jerkface and I'm happy to say the news is all good.

His feeding response has improved dramatically over the past several months and he's now enthusiastically striking his food from the tongs every time I feed him. As he's now keeping his meals down consistently, I've been able to increase his prey size to 7-8 gram hoppers every 2 weeks He's been gaining weight, going from the just under 30 grams I struggled to maintain for so long to now being 56 grams at his last weighing. He's also grown 2-3 inches in length!

Over this weekend, I moved him from his tiny, 10 gallon viv to a 20 gallon long and so far he seems to be doing well with the change. I would say that finally, after a year of struggling with recurrent regurgitation issues, he's finally thriving (again, fingers crossed, knock wood...).

He's in shed right now so I don't want to bug him too much, but I'll post some new pics as soon as he's out of his old skin and looking bright and pretty again.
