what a beauty!
she looks very gravid to me, and considering that she has only eaten one meal in 3 months, i think you will be rewarded soon!
one day i will own one of these beauts, one day!

Thanks.

I also want to believe that she is gravid, but will probably only believe it once the babies are there. lol

The theme song of jaws comes to mind.

The suspense....!
There is something that is much more scarce, something finer by far , something rarer than ability.

Thanks. Yes Justin, that's her body in the background.

She hasnt eaten since that medium rat, so I'm holding thumbs.... VERY TIGHTLY!! haha I must say, she is looking a little thinner to me again, but who knows. I will just wait and see. She is also due to shed sometime soon, so I am waiting for that. My male shed the day before last and he is looking so stunning!!
