    I think he is looking better also, should I continue to use the iodine?

    I don't think it needs iodine at this point but I don't think it will hurt anything to continue it for a little while longer just to be on the safe side.

    Re: I'm concerned - what is it?

    He eats fish (he's a picky bugger), he likes salmon etc (which I add vitamin to frequently (for the whole thiamine vitamin thing)

    He also likes earthworms hopefully I can get him some,

    he just never switched, he loves live fish but they are pricey.

    Since my female orochi became gravid I've been working on getting my guppies to bred as food supply if needed, he loves guppies when I can bear to give him one.

    Re: I'm concerned - what is it?

    I'm worried as he shed but it looks not a lot better can't see it really close as he just ate yesterday so I'll take him out and get an updated shot hopefully I'm wrong,

    Re: I'm concerned - what is it?

    Hopefully you're wrong about what? Anyway, if your snake will eat salmon, it's not hard at all to get them to take pinkies. You just have to scent, be patient, and keep trying.

    To be totally honest with you, I know you're complaining about the fish being expensive but the only salmon that is really safe to feed frequently is wild alaskan pink salmon and it's not cheap. All the rest (all other salmon) you must limit intake. It's not safe to eat a lot of it due to methyl mercury and PCB's. Those two contaminants are in all salmon, but wild alaskan has the least. That stuff builds up in their system over time until it becomes toxic.

    Tilapia is about the only safe fish from the supermarket that has nearly zero mercury and no PCB's. I've seen what happens when you feed them too much salmon. They start twitching and having what appears to be seizures. Not good.
