Its probably still a winter fast. Thats not too big of a drop in weight for her size, so I wouldn’t be too worried yet.
Thank you, brad! I’ll try to stress less on her behalf.
Any idea when about in weight loss I should start the freakout? What percentage of body weight loss is considered danger-mode for an adult?
They say that time is money, but time is way way more valuable. You can earn money. You can only spend time.
Going to attempt to feed Lilly again tonight.
She shed this morning, so i’m hoping she’ll have an appetite this time. Trying not to get my hopes too high though…
Ugh. I knew before i got a ball python that they were finicky eaters… i just didn’t think this would effect me so much emotionally.
If this attempt doesn’t work, i’ve got a few more slightly-desperate things i’m going to try… but then it’s vet time… :C
butthurtherpetologist said: you may want to try putting her in a smaller enclosure for now and just gradually letting her get acclimated to the large one. The sudden enclosure change and apartment move may have stressed her out more than she is comfortable with.
Sure. I could try that. I could try anything right now.
How would one exactly go about gradually letting her get acclimated? What would you recommend? Just using her old enclosure again, and occasionally put her in the new one? Roping off the new one and making it smaller? Maybe putting the old cage IN the new cage? (I can’t run both cages at the same time, unfortunately. I only have one thermostat and i’m reusing a heating unit and the hides.)
I’m worried more housing changes are just going to make this worse… especially since the old enclosure is a nightmare keeping the temps and humid at standard levels… but then again proper temps and humidity levels have done fuck-all for me so far. God dammit i have no idea what to do T^T
No more dragon posts on here it’s getting silly.
