    Just moving our Darwin into her new home. Most toys from her old home are in there but it's twice as big so there's new toys too.

    It's a more exposed area so she has lots of (fake) foliage and assorted hides.

    Just popped her in. There she goes! Plenty to explore here!

    Too right. I've got a hatchy alb coming from Pythonmum to occupy the old enclosure.

    She loves the ceramic orchid pot on the left. Very secure inside but lots of windows to peek out from!

    She's growing now Steve. Nice colours. It's a shame the have to lose the red colour though! She had a really bright red as a hatchie too.

    Wow - fantastic housing! Little Ess will be spoiled to move into her old digs, given your flare for reptile decorating. All he has now is a tablet box to hide in and some mesh as a climbing frame in the click clack. They will really burn off the rodents exploring those enclosures!

    I loved the red/pink too but she is colouring nicely. Some strong oranges and a beautiful creamy yellow in the transition zone. No complaints here. Still owe you a beer for your help earlier with her.

    cheers

    Haha I've got some special holey limestone pieces that all our snakes have loved exploring when they were hatchies. (Family tradition :)) Ess is next!

    Update. She loves the new house, spent the first night in a hide but spends all day (and night) out in the open since.

    Theory- the more places they have to hide the more comfortable they are in the open- confidence!
