    Tracey is getting out of selling probes. It's possible she may have some, but she might have sold out at the latest expo.

    just wanted to share that I got my probing kit in today and I used this video and have successfully probed my snakes for the first time I had some trouble figuring out what sizes to use, but after some searching I saw the suggestion for it to be 1/4 of the anal plate, and that worked out. I was SO scared probing my adult female; she has problems staying still and I was sweating worrying about her jerking. She wasn't too happy with me, but it's not like I haven't bought her dinner (many times) first. Just wanted to say thank you and that this video is still immensely useful!

    Question; how do you disinfect your probes between uses?

    Sorry I missed this! I just wash them with soap and water.

    Say, for a ball python thats 5-7months old. Which one would you recommend to use? Very small one? And would popping okay for small ones?

    I use the smallest probe in my kit for hatchlings.

    Popping is fine too, I just don't have a feel for it

    Re: How to Probe your snake! Video!

    Wow! this video is awesome and so helpful!
    I can (somewhat) pop my snakes but I've always been TERRIFIED to probe them. I know, I know, silly fear, but I'm always afraid that I won't feel that pressure and seriously hurt one of them. I'd really like to learn though since I have a 2100 gram 'female' who is 'built' more like my males, more thin but not skinny.
