Thank you. She seems to love just burrowing at the moment. I don't think she's been provided with inches of substrate before.

Good thing about a rub and a hognose, lift the rub up, really cool to see all the tunnels she will have made

It's not heavy but an 84lt RUB is a bit big to be lifting up for viewing.

She took her 2nd feed aggressively.

Also at the start of the week I made a coil out of a fake vine and gave it to her. It's buried below the surface as well as giving her something to climb should she wish. Even if she doesn't use it, it'll still help when she's shedding.



After her feed.

Nice to see she's right at home.

Had a surprise today when I weighed my female, 339g?! A time lapse camera would see her growing every day I swear.

Not that I think it'll come to anything from their first few meetings and possible locks, should expect eggs mid August. God knows how heavy she could be if full and ready to drop?

Aye. I'm chuffed to bits she's settled in and took this feed even more confidently/aggressively.


Fingers crossed on the lock.

Great to see you've got snakes again Basin. You could make an amazing enclosure for her in one of the larger sized exo-terra tank/viv. Would be ideal for a live planted set up, only trouble is you may never see her!

I don't see the little bugger now. She's only in an 84lt RUB with a few inches of sub and there's no seeing her.
