Thanks! I like the big snakes. Big cats (household cats of course tigers, lions, cougars, etc. are a can of worms I'm not willing to open haha), big dogs, etc.

She's turning out to be smaller than I expected, which I won't complain about too much, but she's still got a few years ahead of her at least to hit some more growth spurts.

Re: Riverrun (Poss Temp Name)

Well River is officially over 7'! SerpWidgets said she was 7'1.5". Next is to weigh her. She's still a bit chunky from those bigger rabbits, but if she's growing again she may slim out again as she gains some more length.

Re: Riverrun (Poss Temp Name)

Also didn't realize I didn't post these here, but here are some photos of me trying to show her size.

Unfortunately, she really badly darkened up vs those post-shed pics, didn't expect her to darken so extremely. She's still that dark, too.

Re: Riverrun (Poss Temp Name)

I gave her a bedding change today, and all she wanted to do was sniff the bedding. I even picked her up and tried to hold her but she went right back in to keep sniffing, and she usually tries to get out. lol

Re: Riverrun (Poss Temp Name)

Beautiful photos. She's a stunner that's for sure. See my post on the thread re viv enrichment on odour enrichment - they do like to explore new smells. And she saved you the job of wrestling her back in!

She's not normally all that difficult to get in - I just have to constantly push her head back in so I don't squash it in the door. lol But I had the door wide open and she went right past it.

As per usual - she pooped a few hours later.

Give them a few months and they grow a lot, even without powerfeeding. My River is a slow grower, and I can still literally watch her grow. She looks bigger each time I take her out!

Re: Riverrun (Poss Temp Name)

I've officially got a Herpstat 4 in, now all I have to do is get the bedding for her enclosure and see how everything runs. The two 6' enclosures used to be attached to posts with an 8" gap between them, but the posts got ruined and they're now sitting almost directly on top of each other. I put two of the posts laying flat across the top of the bottom enclosure with the top one sandwiched on top, but that's maybe an inch gap. I want to test run it for a little bit to make sure that's not going to overheat the top enclosure or make too much condensation like it did with the T12's before I put her in there officially.

The two VE-100's will go to the T12's and the Herpstat 2 will go in the quarantine room to power two of the snakes on heat tape. The T12's will have to be separated since Dominika will be using one of them temporarily, and she'll need to go into the quarantine room while Bud remains in the other T12 in the main room. That will leave me with two Hydrofarms as back ups (and I'll be glad not to depend on them anymore haha - eventually everyone will be run on Herpstats).

Re: Riverrun (Poss Temp Name)

Sounds a great set up bsg. One of the viv builders here in the UK is doing a black Friday sale and assuming my mums house sells on Friday I'm putting in an order for 3 large vivs for my charges.

Always nice to have the comfort of a decent stat as well
