Kiyo has figured out from where the food enters the terrarium. In the first few months with us she wasn't eating but she was very active, climbing all over everything she could reach, night as day. I think now she was actually looking for food but not recognizing what was offered.

Now that she Knows, she lies in her log, head just sticking out, as soon as the sun starts setting, just watching the terrarium door, and when a pinkie comes along she's on it in seconds! Pinkies are a bit small true, but I daren't try the bigger ones yet after the last Fiasco. So she's getting two pinkies a week for a bit longer and then we'll see again.

Also yesterday she got a bath casue she'd been a messy eater the day before, and afterwards she peed all over me XD

(And I have a cold again ;-;)

Kiyo's acting a bit weird. She's laying with just her head poking out of her log and as soon as anyone passes by she snaps to attention!

I tried looking inside the log though and I couldn't see the rat, so I hope she's managed to eat it :3

Kiyo got offered a bigger rat than usual today (the pinkies really are too small for her) and she snapped it up so fucking fast!! :D such a proud snake-mama~

Only she managed to drag it inside her log (and it looks a bit cramped in there) and she's had it for an hour now and not actually eaten it, just "killing", so we'll see how it goes.

Kiyo actually struck at the rat today!! But her aim was off and she hit the feeding thongs instead ;A; You could see it probably hurt becasue she kept adjusting her jaw afterwards and the she wouldn't try again ;-; poor baby <3

Kiyo ate through assisted, and not forced, feeding today. Baby steps!
