I took some pics while she ate, and oh my god I have the dumbest looking animal alive.
Edit: Pics 1 & 3 are swallowing motions for clarification and they look ridiculous I’m cryin’. I didn’t even know she COULD close her mouth so extremely like in the first pic. The teeth?? How is she not stabbing herself?? What a strange creature.
Water level is low enough that this seems like a viable perch for her today? Very cute. She came up to beg for food, attempting to stare me into submission, and then went back to her perch. The pics are garbage (glare) but I thought it was super cute!
More crappy cell photos of Sasha. Judging from these pics I think I’m going to up her feedings a bit. :) I always worry about overfeeding (super common in captive predators), but it looks like she could use a little more!
Normally eels will stop or slow down on feeding when they’re full, or at least many species will IME. Sasha won’t… She will keep eating until she throws up, so it is a little trickier judging how much to feed her.
