    Been a stubborn little feeder these last few months, now he's making up for lost time. (Sorry for terrible pic, didn't want to spook him)

    Thanks guys.

    He's shedding again, will snap some more pics when he does as more of his adult colors come through. Starting to grow out of the 'soak everything that touches me in disgusting liquid' stage quite early, always a bonus. ;)

    Hatchy colours have pretty much gone, growing very quickly! Sorry for crappy phone pics.

    Gorgeous. He is starting to look like he won't be fitting into that toilet roll for much longer. ;)

    He can still pack in there when he really wants to, he'll be getting upgraded soon, he never uses them anyway. Still easily spooked when eating though, so 7L sistema tub is his home until he's more confident.

    Have you found him more nervous than carpets? I know the smaller wild ones I've come across are fairly flighty animals.

    Very nice! I picked up my own boy last week, now I know what people are on about in regards to being sprayed :/ haha


    How is the bitey end going? Any change in temperament as he settles? I pulled my boy out to clean out his stinky paper and got sprayed, but no bites.

    Easy to avoid bites, he'll chomp on you if you're stupid still. ;)

    He's pretty placid, not counting on it lasting though.

    Haha, ain't that the truth! There is an adult pair at work who want nothing more than to rip my face off. If you can manage to hook them out though (no way I could alone) they are okay.

    I was a little surprised how calm mine was, I was expecting a horrendous attitude from the start.

    Big appetite tonight, don't arrest me for not feeding 20% every 7 days. ;)

    [MENTION=38306]Rlpreston[/MENTION] Yeah, that's usually how it goes with them, until they want to kill you for unknown reasons all over again.

    [MENTION=39505]sam78s[/MENTION] That was a full grown mouse and 2 rats of similar size, around 60%+ of his bodyweight. Digested with no complications, waiting a while to feed him again now though.

    Yeah mate, doubling in size between photos almost. Will keep em coming as he grows. Handling well but a tricky/timid feeder, eats a lot when he gets going though!
