Lovely, very nice Corn.

i hope you dont mind but i would suggest incresing the amount of food you give her or up the size of mice you are giving.

I know their could be alsorts of reasons why she is so small at two years.

Try giving her a small mouse every week for 4 weeks then up it to two for 4 months then up it again.

with any luck you should see a big improvement in her size after 6 months.

she definatly looks like she can handle more mice of a larger size.

Here are some suggestions from my web site

you should warm the hot end up a bit.
doing this , you should see an improvement in feeding responce and quicker digestion times.


*A good range for the cool side of your Colubrids enclosure *


*71.6 F 22 C*
*73.4 F 23 C*
*75.2 F 24 C*

***************

* A good range for the warm side of your Colubrids enclosure *


*80.6 F 27 C*
*82.4 F 28 C*
*84.2 F 29 C* Use this temp
*86.0 F 30 C*
*87.0 F 30.6 C*
*88.0 F 31.1 C*

***************
