Wrapped the rat but decided to swallow the thermostat probe.

[doublepost=1540379709,1540341503][/doublepost]May not be funny but the rat was curious about the scaly visitor, one of the local carpets checking out my rat tubs last night.

@Yellowtail how did you remove it? Mine go all single-minded, wired-up and snap at anything that moves when they smell food.
And when you said it was a local visitor, did you mean it’s a wild one and not one of yours?

Alot of people have outside rodent breeding building (whether in a shed or what ever, even a garage) that attracts wild snakes all the time. as you can see his tubs are very secure, not just to keep the rodents in, but to keep the sneks out of a free meal, otherwise they would clean up the place.

It was a wild one that was in that position when I checked on them last night but surprisingly docile, the only way to remove it from the shelf mesh was by hand and it was a lot easier to handle than some of my jungles. The rats were not panicked, just curious about the visitor.
They are my rat growing tubs and inside a lined, insulated air conditioned garage, it is totally snake and rodent proof except a smart python can come down from the roof and enter via the small gap over the 2 garage doors or through the exhaust fans, need to mesh these. I have a shipping container full of rodents next to the garage so there is a lot of attraction for snakes but even the exhaust fans there are meshed and so far no intruders but have found them on the roof and an eastern brown lives under the container..

Sure is, largest teeth of any python relative to body size, if u could inflate them to the size of a retic, their teeth would be 4x bigger than a retic

I have been breeding them for over 10 years and while patterns vary with some being partially striped the black and white colouration is the same. I only have one clutch of eggs this year due to hatch late Nov and I am taking orders, 3 are already sold, they are $500 each.

I’m in Victoria, do you sell interstate?

I might have to get in on that, magnificent looking snakes

@Yellowtail do they have the normal feisty jungle attitude?

One of the original males, now 14 yrs old, is a monster, I have to treat him the same as a cranky eastern brown when cleaning etc or I would be bleeding badly. They seem to have become calmer with each generation and while they come out of the egg with jungle attitude some are quite placid when they stop being defensive and get used to handling, I have some 2 year old future breeders that are very placid and past buyers send me photos of their very tame pets.

I was just reading up some old threads on this forum on whether it is possible to breed for temperament. It got quite... interesting.

Diamonds are supposed to be quite snappy as juveniles, but mine is very docile and when the mood strikes her, seems to willingly seek my company, coming to the front of the enclosure and climbing on my arm of her own free will. Of course, next days she’s all “Ewww, don’t touch me! Go away!”

She’s only snapped at me three times, twice due to mistaken identity (she could smell a mouse but couldn’t find it, so she struck at the movement), and once because I tried to pick her up without waking her up first. She didn’t connect although she definitely could have if she wanted to.

Adult Bredli female on the other hand... skittish and loves to bite and latch on.
