    Sometime you feel like you are taking one step forward and two steps back. I hope everything works out for the best. Beautiful snake.

    Thanks everyone! The anticipation/worry is just about going to kill me. Trust me ya'll: I will not keep the news to myself! You'll be among the first to know what comes of all this! :)

    Lyn your comment was a HUGE RELIEF!! I've been unsure whether or not to keep offering Talyn food as I thought it might delay the birth. I've also worried about her eating in general, since all the books say they won't eat while gravid!

    She's been pretty active at night, re-arranging her furniture. I took out the moss box to give her some more space and found her stretching from end to end of the terrarium last night (when I got up at 2am to check on her!.):rolleyes:
    How much longer can this go on???

    Good! I thought I was the only nut who gets up at night to stare at my herps! ;)


    I can't wait to see those baby pics! I hope everything comes out alright, and hopefully the vet gives you a group discount if you do have to treat all of your babies!

    Another pic -- still waiting

    Well, Talyn's getting active again at night: moving all her furniture to the edges of the terrarium and climbing her branch:

    This Friday there's supposed to be some thunderstorms, so I hope she'll give birth then. (I've read that they often give birth during weather changes and storms... but again, Talyn doesn't read the same stuff I do!!!)
    She's now 5months 3days from her POS. I've read they can have a gestation of 4-8 months.... let's all hope she doesn't make us wait THAT long!!! :)

    Thanks to all of you for your continued support!:D

    LoL... you should really call one of those late night talk shows where they tell you what your dreams mean. I would really like to know what they had to say about a rainbow boa giving birth to rats! :p

    Keep hanging in there!

    Talyn today

    We're now 5 months and 8 days after her post ovulation shed...
    Here's how I found her this morning and she's stayed in this position all day. I found it unusual for several reasons: 1) she usually hides herself completely under one of her hide boxes, 2) she's almost completely rolled onto her side along most of her body. 3) she just looks especially HUGE to me.

    I've started photographing and noting down all the things that seem odd to me, just in case they later turn out to be significant...
    What do you think?

    This is the part of her between the hidebox and the back wall:

    More thunder and lightning storms today and tomorrow... maybe maybe maybe soooooon????? ;)

    Thanks for your continued patience and support!
