Beautiful specimen, love the orange eyes.

I saw your rock hide creations in the post below. Just wanted to add a few comments.

I made a double decker out of wood. The snakes used it, but after using it awhile I see where wood is not the best choice. I moved to rocks much like what you did, and with overhead heating (RHP) the rock hides are very functional. Rosies love cramming themselves into crevices. Tried it with baby Childrens pythons with the same results.

There is a fake rock product out there called something like repti-tiles are similar name. These are fake rocks that look great and are made of a expanded resin-type material that heats up alot like sandstone does. For small snakes, these fake rocks work wonders and are much less the weight of real rock. Too small for larger rosies unfortunately.

I'll also mention PVC pipe. Milksnakes and kings in my care relish PVC pipe as hide spots. Young rosies do too.
