Talking updated pics of my snakie and feeding pics (pic heavy!!)

I got atra, my anery corn, last october when she was 6 weeks old and looked like this....


she is now 8 months old and just got upto around 2ftish...







Her colours are comeing out beautifully now and she is a truely wonderful and rewarding animal..

I had had promblems getting hold of fuzzies for her as all the shops by me were getting HUGE ones in.. so shes recently been on 5 pinkies a week.. but seemed to still be realy hungry this past few weeks..
went on another mission yesterday and finaly found somewhere with normal sized fuzzies but most were only twice the size of her pinkies (and only about the smae width as her at her largest point )so decided to get some fuzzies and also two small hoppers and see which ones would be best suited for her...

so i defrosted a hopper and gave it too her.. she didnt seem to have a clue what to do with it lol.. so i left her with it in her feeding tub with my OH keeping an eye on her while i went and defrosted a fuzzie instead.. when i came back i offered her the fuzzie instead but noooo she had then decided she would battle the hopper.. and there was no convinceing her otherwise.. (the fuzzie next to her is the one i tried to feed her, but it was obviuosly removed after she had eaten then hopper incase she tried to eat that aswell) although she managed the hopper fine in the end, i do think it was bit too big so she will be on large fuzzies instead for the next month or soo? shes my first snake and i still have "no way can u swallow that!!" syndrome

hmm mummy this is a bit big.. maybe if i drag it over here....


or maybe il give it a good chew?


look i did it.. its all gone.. well accept this blooming tail....


he he look mummy i have a mouse tongue!!

Deffintly taking hoppers, shes easilly big enough. Although i still think that, even after 8 years of keeping snakes. Somtime i just think, surely that won't fit !

Anery's are beautiful and yours does have really nice dark markings !

you think she would be okay on hoppers from now on then??
that was quite a small hopper, the other ones a bit bigger..
i have a random selection of pinkies, a hopper n fuzzies now.. maybe a pick n mix diet? lol

i was soo worried it was too big
and yush i realy love anery's.. im a bit biased though lol

I think she looks beautiful Our corn chews on his mouse and drags it around for a bit too! The funniest thing that ever happened was he had it balanced on one of his coils and it slipped off...i've never seen a snake jump so much and wrestle a dead mouse...

I'm sure you know but just use the 1.5 times the thickest part of the snake guide rule. Mine's around the same age but is still on fuzzies just because I have loads of them. You dont have to bump up in size just because she could handle them

yep i knows the 1.5 rule but thanks for that anyway!!
yush i think i am going to feed her a sort of pick n mix of what i have n then start buying hoppers once everything else has gone.. i was just trying to figure out what would be best for her at the moment.. but she will be on what i have for a while.. she did seem a bit confused by the hopper bless her!!
