Glad to hear she is thriving.


Well you do like a challenge, I have 3 one I just got a couple months ago, 2 are now 5 years old, when I get them they go into a large shoebox or tupperware with cypress mulch 2-3" deep and a big cover of moist moss, do not mist! take the moss an dsoak it to get it wet, misting causes stress, stress kills. keep in a dark area, I use a closet, I keep the temp at 75-80 all the time, no direct light. do not handle them, use a tight hide space and feed smaller meals than you would for a C/B, I have a 3 footer that I feed fuzzies, eats 2 a week and is thriving. feed live, just drop and put the cover back on, come back and check in a few hours. do not tease feed, leads to stress. these are very very delicate animals do not be suprised if they all die within a month. not to discourage you but....my newest is thriving, aggressive and eating and has shed, oh make sure that they are hydrated, soak them if you have to, is the most important thing, hydration . Good luck to you and the snakes.
