Bogey Has Grown

My jungle/cross has grown quite a bit in the nearly 3 years I've had her. Actually, I'm assuming female due to the relative girth, never have probed or popped to be certain. Bulk is comparable to the female BCI that's about a year younger, though not yet 6'+ like this one. The yellow really came out much brighter than I imagined when I picked out a wee baby.

Here's a pic from November of 2014, mostly browns and a bit of black:


Caught in middle of shed in February of 2016:


Couple months later escaped the 40 breeder and had a mousefest, had eaten 6 pregnant females and had the only male in the tub in coils when caught in the act. Switched to rats the following week, lol.


Having a relaxing soak after chowing down a rat last night.

Re: Bogey Has Grown

Nice carpet TnB. She's grown quite a bit. I remember when she raided your mice colony . What's her feeding schedule like these days? I need to get some larger water bowls so mine have the option to soak.

Re: Bogey Has Grown

She's offered food weekly, sometimes isn't interested though. She could easily take a large rat, but I usually offer one that's smaller and easier to swallow. Is he looking too fat for her length? Her growth rate doesn't seem to have slowed yet.
I just ran across some larger plastic tubs at WalMart, picked up 3. She'll be getting one, the other two went to the female Dumeril's and BCI. The big and bulky girls take up about twice the volume of space/water as the male BCI and the male Dominicans. Even the largest female Dominican, now about 7', is only about half the girth of Bogey.
