    They are the stupidest animals I've ever owned, I'd challange anyone to get them to bite, dumb animals.

    Mine are the most relaxed eaters I have ever seen. NO striking at all. They slowly go up to their food and open their mouth and try to swallow it without even wrapping any part of their body around it. They usually take a while to eat as most of the time is spent pushing it around the enclosure with their head!

    Okay I have to ask, and I don't mean any offence to anybody on this thread, but why bother owning them if you think they're stupid and will turn ugly anyday? Sorry I just think its pointless if thats how you feel. They're stunning animals, my personal favourite of all pythons, I'm yet to see an adult that I don't think is attractive.

    Do you have any? Cause if you do you'd understand just how stupid they are. And when you compare adults to babies you can understand they've clearly turned ugly.

    they hadn't been fed for about three weeks prior to those photos so they were getting hungry, normally they don't wrap them up or strike.
