Wolf

She is doing well. We had an issue where I couldn't find the skink feeders for awhile so she started trying to escape to find her own food. When that happened she rubbed her head and an infection set in under the scale. Kept washing it out with betadine and eventually the scale fell off. Shortly after she shed and the infection was all gone. Also, had a problem with a really bad shed even though i thought I had the humidity high enough. Been keeping a humid hide in her cage since and her last shed came off perfect the only problem was a few of the damaged scales from the bad shed came off. She spends a lot of time in the humid hide so I'm thinking she likes the humidity a lot closer to baby rainbow boa level. I'll have to keep experimenting a little on that one.

She has had 5 meals in a row now and is putting on weight. She had gotten so skinny I was worried about her but I think she'll be back up to weight within 2 weeks most likely.

This is her about a week or so ago after that really nice shed. You can see the scale damage on the head and side of the neck.





Tonight once again in shed and full of skink. Her head looks better already and I'm pretty sure her scales will come back just fine. Reminds me of the retics after they rubbed their heads. She is insanely tolerant. If they didn't eat skinks and we had more info on them I would probably say they would make great beginner snakes.

Thanks! I'd really be interested in finding a male for her but have no idea what I would feed the little ones. Skink tails maybe? Of course I would have to convince them they want to breed lol. Right now I'm of course just worrying about getting the husbandry on her perfect!
