    Yea im not too concerned, he is a very enthusiastic eater. I recall reading that diamonds tend to stay a bit slimmer then other Morelia due to being more arboreal, not sure how much merit is in that though.

    Unknown, I bought her and a male 2 years ago from someone in Qld that had gone to the trouble and expense of importing the pair from WA.

    So I did say earlier today that Cass was probably due for a shed...

    I've come home to find that she has shed! I had no idea that she was even in shed, I fed her only 4 days ago and as you saw I handled her earlier today. She was super chill at all times and took the food no worries. This was only her second shed though, do the first few sheds not have the blue phase? Regardless her shed is whole and with both caps so I'm very grateful!

    These photos aren't in the sun but when you compare them to the one earlier today she does look a bit brighter. The one from earlier:

    Yes... Just like the best time to be out fishing is the time you're most likely to get struck by lightening...

    You don't want to be handling the day of or 2 days after a feed do you... It's easy to avoid a food response bite, just don't be smelling like food. ;) Best time to handle after a shed, the snake is looking awesome and is nice and active whereas prior to shedding you shouldn't be handling anyway plus the snake will be irritable and hiding away not wanting to be disturbed.

    Spyro shedding again, looks to me like he is rocking the latest fashion trend. Even did a little pose.

    The one on the right was last night, the one on left was in August so there was 1 shed in between but that was before the rabbit. I’ll see if I have that shed and match it up
