    Lol yeah i'd like to get another but my next one I really wanted was a SD/D pied tiger retic but I guess they haven't been made yet. I might have to suck it up and try and find a small parents male one as I don't want a 14' snake lol.

    Well I think Caesar has outgrown weaned rats already. Guess the little man needs small rats now. He is growing like a monster lol. I got him Oct 10 and when I got him, an adult mouse made a sizeable lump in him, now weaned rats barely do anything and he's going into his 2nd shed in a month.


    And here's him doing the ritual butt sniffing that he loves to do with his food lol

    Oh yeah, he could take at least a small rat no problem. Love the paint job on your guy!

    Beautiful snake!

    He is only going to improve with age. A friend of mine who is very, very familiar with the species says it is one that improves with age rather than fades. His head looks pretty thick and square too.

    Caesar will have zero issues with small rats.

    Pythons seem to fair quite well with large prey items within reason.

    Thanks. Yeah I love this little man lol. He has definitely filled out since I got him. Kris said pack him with a little food to fill him out and he was right, this little guy has gotten the "retic head" and has thickened up nicely. His head is wrinkly though as he's ready to shed so after he does, i'll put up some fresh shed pics of him lol.

    And yeah, he should easily eat smalls now. Like I said, when I got him, he was probably 2.5-3' and small rats just seems a little big for him but now, he's almost 4' and eats weaned rats butt first easily lol.

    Here's a couple pics of him with no flash. Not very clear lol.

    Ok wtf lol. So in the pictures above, I gave Caesar weaned rats and he was clearly too big for them. So fat forward a week or so and Caesar shed today. Well he went bananas as I was cleaning his huge turd and taking his shed skin out and he wanted food NOW!! So I go get him a small rat and wtf!! It now looks like small rats are too small for him!! This guy is a monster lol. He just eats, poops and grows. It might be time for small mediums or 2 smalls.


    Kind of hard to see but there pretty much isn't even a lump and he just ate it and is crawling off...

    I think that looks just fine. I guess it all depends on what you want his final size to be. From everything I've been told and read, early, frequent feedings will result in accelerated growth and larger adult size.

    I'm staying with smalls and a 7-10 day interval but I'm looking to stay 9 feet or under.

    Caesar seems to have a zest for chowing down. Wallace eats but never goes crazy, at least not yet.

    He looks great bud! You definitely got yourself a winner there!!

    Thanks man. Yeah I might just try the one smalls and see how he acts. If its like today, he might need more or I might need a hook lol. He is definitely not shy. When I walked in the room, he immediately poked his head up over his hide and came forward lol. Then when he saw nothing yet, he went back and sat with his head on top of the hide. Then when I opened the door after the rat was thawed and removed his warm hide, he again came shooting forward following the hide lol all the way up to the door opening. I kind of had to push his face back while using the hide as a shield/battering ram lol. And when he finally saw the rat, it was game over. He went gung ho and grabbed it and wrapped it. The pictures are of him after holding it a few mins lol.

    And yeah I kind of want him to stay under 10' but I don't want to underfeed him to achieve it, not saying you are but you know what I mean.

    Caesar progression thread.

    Lol sounds just like Phyllis! Eating, pooping, growing machine. Just like you said about Caesar's feeding response, she's not shy about food in the slightest either. Comes rushing to the cage door as soon as the key is in the door lock. I'd say as long as he isn't pushing at the cage and seems otherwise content those smalls are probably fine. I dropped Phyllis's temps a bit and I think that calmed her down some. She still managed to cook down a legit medium rat in about 4 days though. Keeping her at a 7 day interval and monitoring her pushing tendencies. Seems to be keeping her in check. Caesar looks even brighter than the last pics you posted! I know you said he's fresh shed but dang... He's going to look amazing as an adult!

    Thanks. Yeah he does seem to be getting brighter. He also is getting an attitude lol. When he wants food, he isn't shy about letting me know lol. When he was in shed, he was an angel. Now that he is out of shed, he's a terror lol. Think i'm going to drop him down to 7 days too.

    Even my little dumerils is growing like a weed lol. She shed last night too and I went to go feed her and she is up to small adult mice from her hoppers when I got her. Everyone is all growing up lol.
