    Sloughing, eating and being flash-photographed at the same time? No problem for this little fella. Feeding is always fun time in our house. Doesn't matter when I feed them, in the morning, afternoon, before dark, after dark - the appetite is always there.

    No, I haven't got any shots of it. It's just aluminium q block put together with those black plastic joiners. Nothing to it.

    No, I replace it when it gets dry and starts to get moldy.

    Must be great to not have to worry aout heating, that's always the most complicated part for me.

    I can understand that. It's not easy to keep up the temps and humidity high while maintaining good air exchange at the same time.
    I used to live and keep reptiles in Sydney in my first life, I remember bits of it.

    The blue are just remains of the brown juvenile markings. They will disappear altogether during the next year.
