I have a suri female that I am doubting is gravid, since she's at 138 days POS. Given the photos below, does she look gravid to you? Or can I resume normal feeding?

Need to know if I can go out of town without worrying...

Continuing from the post below...

History - she was with her mate from December on and off until early February. Courting was witnessed, but not copulation. She did swell, and shed somewhere between February 27 and March 2nd. She had shed on a regular schedule (4 to 6 weeks) before the POS. The boas were not cooled.

She did not lose her appetite, and I fed small meals (one small rat) once every two weeks from March until mid-May, when I stopped feeding. I fed a small meal last week, since I've been getting more doubtful.

She shed again on July 4th (a huge gap for her).

Photos -

I'll take another photo today.
