Cute little amel, I agree, she'll look great once regains some weight.

I wasn't aware of that. Though I'm of the belief that anything fungal needs to be strictly quarantined and referred to a vet immediately. Especially these days.

Indeed. I'm kinda excited to bring her back to full health.

Understood. It was simply the idea of a routine disinfectant soak that is new to me. I'd certainly research the dilution rates, etc before engaging in any new routine.

Thanks for all the info!

No problem! I don't use it all the time, myself. It's more of an occasional thing. Like if I miss a cleaning or someone decides to try and "paint"... Other than that I might do it every 4-6 weeks.

Well this little girl is eating like a horse and putting on weight. Her temperament is just about perfect. She is always looking for a meal but "shuts off" quicker than any of my boas when she knows there's nothing.

She shed for me a while back, and the tail tip got stuck on the damaged section where she had the previous stuck shed, but I caught it quickly and gave her a nice soak and it came right off with no resistance. That area of her tail did bleed a tiny bit afterward, but it looked like it scabbed up cleanly and was no worse than before.

In the mean time I kept a close eye on her and called a couple local vets just in case I had to bring her in to have it removed, but she continued to do fine with nothing but careful hygiene.

Fast forward a couple weeks, and I check on her like usual, only to find it fell off on its own. I'm pretty sure her body did a better job than the vet could have since you can barely tell she lost about 3/8".

She's one big step closer to me being ready to break the news to my daughter that Slinky is her snake.
