A little Mocha update.
Aww, I scared my snek 🙈 Sorry girl ❤️ My bad 😏
Mocha is doing real well. She comes out twice a week and watches TV with me (no really, she actually WATCHES TV!) and she's eating every 5 days (frozen, thawed) instead of every 7. I think it's better for her first 6 months of growth.
She's up from 132g (Jan.28) to 187g (today).
The tree trunk is over her heat pad set to 90°, she always spends 2 days after a meal in there and then she moves to her cool hide, the little cave, the rest of the time.
She still loves her cozy little clear plastic bin. There are many holes drilled in the sides, all around, and the lid, but this allows me to get her humidity levels on point for her shedding to be in one piece. So far so good. 👍🏼
FYI ... Baby snakes feel more secure in small spaces. Once she hits over 300g + I'm going to move her to her permanent enclosure; it's wood with 3 sides visually closed off and a glass front with lock. I will give her several places to hide and she'll have room to explore at night. I just want to make sure she's ready for a larger space so she won't be stressed.
I never thought I'd say that a snake could be sweet, but she really is. And when I open the lid and clap the tongs together she knows she's getting fed and she can't get out of her cave fast enough. It's pretty funny.
My substrate choice: ReptiChip - Smells great, no mold, keeps humidity nicely.
