    Thanks! She's a little over two years old. Yes she's a big girl, right at 1000 grams. She eats well

    Congratulations man. They are probably the best pet reptile there is. So easy to house and feed. Very personable, curious, and easy going. That one looks great.

    Enjoy and post updates for us!

    Great enclosure. I love the hides and the plants.

    Does Slinky mind handling? What's the basking temp?
