    Hey all
    posted yesterday on a question and well, as I have been reading everyone loves photos, Got a couple of the little one today :)
    Been wanting one for almost 10 years was never allowed one, separated from daughters mother but had marine tanks setup. Got rid of them not long ago as too much work for my job, not at home a few days a week.

    Anyway here it is, got history from it and first feed was 8/2/17 and hasnt missed a meal. Very plassive. IMG_1358.jpg IMG_1334.jpg IMG_1344.jpg

    hahah
    and another Jones :p

    Well been in the enclosure for a week today, about 8 days since last feed. First feed I have done, was expecting more of a strike and for me to crap myself and throw **** everywhere. But was alot less then I was expecting, ate fine and back in its hidey spot. :) Didnt really want to be handled before that, but was guessing was hungry.

    Yeah fancy that lol not many around.
    I’m glad it’s settling in nicely. I have a woma Python that does the same haha barely even moves to grab the food. Just opens its mouth and starts swallowing

    Did you feed during the day or at night? My spotted used to do the same thing if I offered her food during the day, she'd just slowly come over and ever so gently open her mouth, really slowly and just take the fuzzie. I thought, this isn't right lol. Started offering food at night and what a difference that made... she started slamming them so hard that she nearly knocked the tongs from my grip.

    You will find some snakes have little or no feeding response; and then one day, they will surprise and strike. We have a MD who is our most placid snake. He never struck out, even ate gently while coiled around my wrist once as a juvenile. Then one day, he launched at the food. I nearly dropped the tongs in surprise, lol.

    I feed it in the arvo was about 6pm, had to try get it out of hiding though was under the water bowl, not sure how it fitted under it. Still did a strike and wrap.
    I'm sure the day it really strikes it will most prob be me hahaha
    Spotted him chilling out this morning :)
