    This little girl was looking very photogenic this morning despite being in shed. Her eyes were bright blue the last couple days, but they're starting to clear up now so she should shed in a few days. I will take some post-shed pics for comparison, she will be glowing lol, but for now here are her pre-shed pics.

    Thanks for posting Justor! You know that I am a huge fan of your girl. Can't wait to see the "after" pics. Mine just shed last night and actually let me watch, I was pretty excited. She grew a true 12" in a month and a half.

    I actually witnessed mine shedding from start to finish about a week or so ago. I had never seen the beginning of a snake shed (rubbing noses on everything to start) so when I walked in my room and saw her head upside down on her log I freaked out.. she started moving around and rubbing on things a couple seconds later but man it have me a heart attack for a second there.

    Also! Gorgeous snake you have there Justor! I always love seeing pictures of your carpets.

    She has grown quite a bit since her last shed. After the last one a few months back I started her on small rats instead of the large mice she had been taking up until then, and the difference in growth is definitely noticable. Her head in particular is starting to look a lot more like that of an adult carpet.

    Those rats are indeed making a difference! She look smuch bigger, and sure those colors will be awesome when she does come out. Nightstalker just shed 3 days ago and her color is really vibrant now. Love the post shed pix, will keep an eye out for yours

    She looks great! What is she measuring in at? You should post a few pics of your set-up, looks pretty cool.

    Thanks, I'm not sure what she measures but for a rough guess I would say about 4.5 feet maybe a little more. She was fed yesterday so I don't want to disturb her, but I'll see if I can get some good measurements in a few days.

    This is what her tank looks like. It used to have more leaves, but she kept taking them down lol.

    Tank looks good! I like the real wood, makes enclosures look nicer. She must be doing well if she's at 4.5 ft already! Hows her temper, she looks mild in the photos of you handling her.

    Yea on second thought she's probably closer to 4 ft, but I'll get a better idea next time I take her out. She has a very calm temper and is easy to handle. I normally wait until I see her cruising around to take her out. All I have to do is remove the lid and she comes right out. Of course she doesn't like being disturbed when she's resting, and she will let me know if I'm bothering her lol.

    Good to hear she has a good temper. the other night Angel was sick and sleeping and I couldn't turn on the lights I use for feeding. When I open Nightstalkers enclosure she shot out at me and just barely missed my arm! I was at disadvantage not being able to see her well... she's by far my worst
