    What did you decide on for his nickname Kirk?

    I certainly am, he currently appears to be hiding beneath the paper towel on the warm side of his home. I'm hoping to catch a glimpse of him later tonight or tomorrow if he feels up to exploring.

    I decided on Pretzel as his nickname

    He's a cute little guy, I'm still amazed at how tiny they are as hatchies. Now the patience of waiting till you can handle him.:D

    Yup. I usually wait about that before handling, just to let them settle into their new environment.

    I usually wait a week or two until they settle in, and then a couple of days after feeding if he feeds during that time.

    congratulations mum,I know how excited you must be.
    I had dragons for years before I bought my first pair of snakes and they were so tiny we called them worms. I couldn't get enough of them

    If giant worms freak you out, don't think about giant pedes. I have some Ethmostigmus rubripes that are Australia's biggest but nothing like this.
