    Nice! Maybe a branch so it can climb since you have all that vertical room.

    Whenever I find really big ones like that, they take fuzzy mice without even trying hard.

    My big eastern girls I saved from the mower last year took rodents right away with no scenting.

    Frozen/thawed. Our snakes are quite active. I feed 2 large pinkies a week to each of my adults, not sure about fuzzies, I'm not sure of their size.

    You don't need to start yet. I'd let her get settled in first.

    Probably.

    Her eyes will get bluer, then they'll clear up, then shell shed.

    Welcome to the forum! Very pretty Eastern you have there. Love the enclosure, just make sure it is not in direct sunlight for too long at any point during the day. It may become to hot in there.

    Most snakes will take the nightcrawlers and/or mice once they have acclimated themselves to their new surroundings. Good luck!
