Great looking snake!

She's looking healthy too Doug, you're taking good care of her.

thanks, guys... it's really gratifying for me to see/know how well she's doing compared to when I got her.. (starving, neglected) .. I really want to make up for the cruelty she had to endure before.. it's amazing what a little care can do... I was reading a post, on another forum, where someone was in a pet store and saw a 17' Burm crammed in a 40 gallon aquarium.. with poop and old skin sheds.. :(.. can't stop thinking about that.. makes me so mad.. I said they should report them to the ASPCA or Humane Society.. people have no sympathy for snakes... it's just plain cruel.. for which there's no excuse.. it's one thing to keep an animal as a 'captive'.. it's another to torture it.. I think there's a special place in hell for people like that.. no conscience whatsoever..

Lol, Doug, looks like you're starting to have to strain to pick her up xD

Look at my beautiful girl!! She misses me, I can tell :D

I know!... I can barely get her out of her tank.. she's even heavier than she looks.. especially when she starts squirming to get down (like a little kid).. and suddenly getting longer.. I almost step on her tail, now.. I was cleaning her cage yesterday and lost her for a minute.. I put her on the ground and she got under the leaves... you'd be surprised how quickly a large snake can disappear.. I knew right where she was, but ended up frantically slinging leaves everywhere to find her.. (she must've been trying to escape to come find you.. ;))

Lol, that must have been it =O Haha, that reminds me of the first night I got Whiskey >.> I made him a makeshift hide and he went in it and I guess during the night he got cold and burrowed in the bedding. I was frantic, even though I knew where he was O.O

well.. I just cleaned Saffron's enclosure.. again.. 2nd time in a few days... wonder why they'll go weeks without messing, then want to go as soon as you clean the cage.. lol.. anyway.. she's growing!.. I took several measurements, which isn't easy.. she's somewhere between 8 1/2 and 9 feet long.. definately 6" + since her last measurement.. took her a while to start growing.. I guess since she was so neglected before I got her.. probably had to bank some bodyweight before she could grow.. she also weighs 33 lbs!.. she only weighed about 15 lbs. when I got her... if that.. and she just pooped and hasn't eaten.. she's creeping up on the 50 lb. limit for exotic pets (county ordinance)... gonna have to keep her 'under the radar'.. ;)

Lol, the girl's getting big =O Whewt! Can't wait til little Whiskey starts growing more <3

He's chomping down on a mouse right now n.n And he's no idea that it's got worm medicine in it =O So he'll be completely healthy :3 The vet gave it to me cause I told him I didn't trust my aunt with the wild lizards and stuff .... So he just laughed and gave it to me and told me to use it when I was "suspicious" or just once every 4-6 months otherwise :3
