Retic in the grass

Checked the temps today and it was warm enough to get her outside for a bit, so I thought why not take a quick video and a couple of pics. I shot the video in HD, but for some reason YouTube knocked it down till 360, well anyway here it is plus a few pics

I have just uploaded these images:

She's doing fine for you mate, the first year you can basically watch them grow everytime you feed them

Re: Retic in the grass

Jenny is such a beautiful animal...Hey Dave... At what age should you back off a retic from feeding once a week, to 10 days, to every two week?

Thanks mate, and Jenny was fed every 7 days until she hit a year old. After that she was fed depending on the size of the prey item, if we fed her something big we would leave a bigger gap until she was fed again

That's one funny looking dog...

Awesome girl though. Jenny's one of those snakes that we can identify a mile off. I really enjoy seeing her.
