Re: Carrot, Paradox Albino Cape House snake.

Took some new pictures of Carrot last night. Still not eating on her own but otherwise is doing well.

Re: Carrot, Paradox Albino Cape House snake.

Still looking good! Hopefully it starts eating on its own soon.

The eye looks interesting, it almost looks like it didn't completely lose the eye. It's still got a pupil and iris and everything. Just puny and underdeveloped, so I'm sure it can't see out of it, but different than what you normally see in the eyeless/one-eyed albino boas as they lose the entire eyeball.

Re: Carrot, Paradox Albino Cape House snake.

Yeah, the eye is super weird. At first I thought that she'd lose the whole thing, that happened to a garter snake I had after she got an infection in her eye and the whole eye eventually dried up and fell out. Carrot's eye looked a lot like that at first but when she shed, it was like only the top couple "layers" for lack of a a better word, came off with the shed. There is still the remnants of a pupil there, though you can tell it's not functional and I'm 99.9% sure she can't see anything out of it.

Re: Carrot, Paradox Albino Cape House snake.

Awesome! Carrot today with a full belly. She finally ate on her own!

My live rodent supplier had a litter of very small newborns this time and one of the other non eating House snakes also ate last night. Leaves me just one non eater.

Re: Carrot, Paradox Albino Cape House snake.

Its always nice to see your snakes finally eat. I was always told, don't worry, no animal will starve itself to death, but when its your animal then it's human nature to worry.

Re: Carrot, Paradox Albino Cape House snake.

Carrot has now eaten twice on her own and has already put on a good bit of weight from it.

Took this video today, it's not very good unfortunately. She was very unhappy about the phone for the first part of it and did not want to cooperate with posing!

Re: Carrot, Paradox Albino Cape House snake.

lol So awkward. I have a cat that does that. Not exactly in the same way because his skeleton doesn't work like that, but the general idea.

Re: Carrot, Paradox Albino Cape House snake.

Carrot really is a little miracle baby!

She shed tonight and her damaged eye looks a thousand times better than it had. Surprisingly, though it is undersized (part of it come off with her first shed) it now looks healed and the pupil is reactive.
So I now think that she has at least some vision out of it!!











The other, undamaged, eye.

Re: Carrot, Paradox Albino Cape House snake.

The eye looks like it's getting bigger! Snakes truly are amazing, hopefully this means that eye will be fully functional/sized at some point. Exciting stuff.
