My normally bright green happy little girl puffed up and changed colors rapidly when I added a couple of pothos plants. She went down to check them out for a few minutes and is now bright green again. Tough girl!

Hello,

My first post on the forums was solely related to my enclosure and I implemented most of the suggestions from Beman and Eklerose. Her new larger enclosure is purchased and being built. Thanks!

Awesome! Sorry about that!

Pretty girl!
Do you have a lay bin in her cage?
I would think about getting rid of the fake plants as well...they can cause impactions.

I can’t wait to show you all her new larger enclosure with a bare bottom and all real plants, sticks, and vines. I plan to bake and steam sterilize everything. I am providing her with a lay bin filled with play sand (she is five months old) and I’m keeping her basking at 78-80 and watching her diet to keep her clutches smaller. She is hand fed only so I can count exactly what she eats. Plus she’s really personable and took to hand feeding quickly. She even took a cricket from my son, my wife, and my mother in law! I have put her on the palms outside of her enclosure and she eats there too. She will even eat when I hold her. I try not to hold her too often but she’s really cute and trusting. More pics to come!
