Well, a lot has happened in the recent weeks. One thing that is under current projects is a new enclosure for my 8'3" normal albino female. The dimensions are 8'x2'x2'. We are using oak for the build, and will have two viewing areas on the front of the enclosure with two seperate locking doors on the top. It has a 2x4 base for strength and will sit on 6 casters for ease of movement. The inside will be sealed and water proofed and the exterior will be stained most likely with a clear or medium shade of stain. My big girl weighs in at 21.2 pounds, and is quiet the joy to handle, although at this point I do not handle her without someone else being present. I have to give a lot of credit to my step dad. If it were not for his help in the last two weeks, I think I would have torn my hair out in frustration.

On a side note...does anyone have any idea of how the market for Burmese is going? I mean, I know it sucks that you can no longer ship across state lines, and exports must immediately leave the country. I think the market is going to be minimal for in state sales for a time, and then the market will climb and finally level off. That's my take on it. It will never truly be what it once was though, and it disappoints me. I have a pair of granites that are albino and het for albino that may end up just being big pets. I hate that I missed out on one or a pair of hypos.

Anyways, that's enough from me at this point.
